Japanese occupation of Southeast Asia and the role of Indian National Army during World War II


Author(s): Dr. Sameer Kumar

Abstract: When the world was engaged in its bloodiest war, India was involved in a different kind of conflict: the fight for independence from oppressive foreign rule. India, the mother of civilization and the cradle of humanity, desired independence, and the Second World War provided the opportunity. Outside of India's sovereign territory, freedom fighters formed the Indian National Army and the Provisional Government of Free India and fought against British rule in alliance with Japan, an Axis power. This commentary recounts the emotional and exhilarating chain of events that led to India's eventual independence from British rule during the Second World War. The Indian British Army fought in both Africa and Europe with valour. This paper also provides information about Indian soldiers who fought for their British masters and contributed to the defeat of the Nazis.
