ENGLISH TEXT, Allied Publishers, Bombay, 1974. India first edition, hard bound in dj, 6 x 8 1/12, VG/VG condition, 543 pages, bibliog., index.---------------------'Red Coats to Olive Green is the first full length, well-documented and authentic story of the Indian Army. Commencing from the days of the East India Company when the Indian Sepoys were dressed in Red Coats, the story threads its way through the various political and social changes which formed the warp and weft of the rich fabric of Indian history.---------------------------------------------The Indian soldier stands out prominently and his brave exploits have been focused sharply. The Indian element of the Indian Army which had received tardy appreciation at the hands of the British is, for the first time, brought into limelight.As the 19th century came to an end, strident voices of Indian nationalism were raised; they asked for the Indianisation of the Army. World War I hastened the pace and World War brought about a collapse of the British opposition to Indianisation.On the eve of India's Independence, Jawaharlal Nehru appealed to the nation to look upon the Indian Army as "a real national Army". The story of free India's Army--now in Olive Green—is also related to the internal and foreign policies of the country. The latest events of 1973 have been packed inside.
