Book review: Sepoys in the Trenches

Sepoys in the Trenches looks at the role played by the Indian Corps on the Western Front in 1914 and 1915 before their withdrawal from that theatre. The battles they were involved in (and the role they played in these battles) is explained. It also shows the difficulties faced, especially in replacing losses of men and officers.

The role of the Indian Corps on the Western Front is often overlooked; in fact, I’m struggling to think of another account that makes much, if any, mention of them. This book certainly taught me new things and is a fresh perspective on the Western Front battles at the start of the war.
