FOOC: The Colonial Troops of World War One

Updated: May 13, 2018

BBC - The Essential with Reeta Chakrabarti

World War I was, by definition, a global conflict - and it involved combatants and support staff all around the world. It wasn't simply a fight between European powers: individuals across Africa and Asia volunteered, struggled and fought, sometimes at home, sometimes half a world away.

A special essay from Reeta Chakrabarti, in France and Kenya, commemorates the contribution and the sacrifices of Indian and East African troops who served on the British side during the conflict.
