Forgotten Army: India’s Armed Struggle for Independence,1942-45

The last days of the Raj bring to mind Gandhi’s non-violence and Nehru’s diplomacy. These associations obscure another reality-that an army of Indian men and women tried to throw the British off the subcontinent. Now The Forgotten Army brings to life for the first time the story of how Subhash Chandra Bose, a charismatic Bengali, attempted to liberate India with an army of former British Indian soldiers- The Indian National Army (INA).
