Resource Description

Providing a comprehensive look at the British Indian Army’s participation and contributions to World War I, this highly engaging Canadian work combines a fictional graphic novel-style story with primary sources, quotations, and an array of visuals including photographs and art work. This scrapbook-style work focuses on the important role that Punjabi/Sikh soldiers and the Indian Expeditionary Force played during the War as they fought for the British Empire. Useful in grade 10-12 classrooms to supplement texts and lessons on World War I, and to explore racist policies and attitudes of Canadian society in the early 20th century.
