The Camel Corps

During World War I the British empire enlisted more than a million Indian troops to fight alongside the Brits. Thankfully only about 100,000 of those million were killed in combat. The Indian Government also contributed $30 million pounds annually for the war effort. The most famous military unit was the Camel Corps. In return for their war efforts Britain promised that India would achieve their independence, however it wasn’t for another thirty years that India would gain their freedom.
