This volume examines the Indian Army between the outbreak of war in 1939 and the partition of India in 1947. With contributions from many of those at the forefront of the study of the Indian Army and Commonwealth history, the book makes a substantial contribution to a range of subjects, from the Indian Army's participation in the Second World War, to the evolution of wartime training, frontier operations, and its role in the development of post-war counterinsurgency practice. The volume concludes with several chapters examining the impact and legacy of Partition in 1947.
