S3 E09 - Dr. Rob Lyman on the Indian Contribution in the Far East
Show Notes

This week we welcome WW2 historian, Research Fellow at Oxford University and author of "A War of Empires"  Dr. Rob Lyman who joins us to rage that we overlook and misunderstand the contribution of India and her people to the fight against the Japanese.

He talks Paul and Kyle about how they didn't fight for Britain, how they were completely seperate from the British Army and why India herself got into this fight.

If you'd like to know more about this subject then why not buy a copy of "A War of Empires" from the History Rage Bookshop . This helps Rob, us and independent booksellers.
