The voices who could tell the Indian story of the First World War have long been silenced, but at last India is getting the chance to hear its own soldiers speaking in this collection of letters sent by them while they served in France. Fighting alongside soldiers whose language, customs and indeed colour were strange to them, these letters bear eloquent witness to the sepoys’ often unsettling encounters with Europe and European culture. By turns poignant, funny and moving, they provide an intimate picture of the world of the Western Front.
