Praise for this book
"Jarboe skillfully explores the complex role that Indian soldiers played in the First World War and its repercussions. . . . [He] provides superb analysis of primary sources. . . . The variety of themes covered in the text and the style in which Jarboe writes make this a great book for anyone, from advanced scholars of World War I to those with even a slight interest in military (or race, class, or even gender) history."--Tamala Malerk, H-War

"This is a welcome addition to the literature on the Great War and imperialism."--S. L. Smith, Choice
"Indian Soldiers in World War I counters nostalgic views of the British Empire and presents critical insight into the global nature of Indian involvement in the war and its consequences for India and the British Empire. General readers and specialists alike will find Jarboe's prose both engaging and accessible."--Alex Paul, Journal of Military History
"Indian Soldiers in World War I portrays, for the first time, a nuanced picture of what it was like for Indian soldiers during World War I. . . . Andrew Jarboe brings out both the globality and interconnectedness of the soldiers' experience during the war. In addition he uses the hitherto neglected source of the Indian press. This extremely readable monograph will inevitably become an essential text for anyone interested in Indian soldiers during World War I."--Alan Jeffreys, senior curator of the Imperial War Museum and author of Approach to Battle: Training the Indian Army during the Second World War
