Forgotten Allies: The Military Contribution of the Colonies, Exiled Governments, and Lesser Powers to the Allied Victory in World War II

Many nations played a role as belligerents on the Allied side in World War II. Many were in the thick of combat and made grave national sacrifices--yet general histories mention them only briefly or omit their story entirely. The assisting troops are given their due in this unique, comprehensive and readable history. Included are chapters about land and sea troops from such countries as Fiji, Trans-Jordan, Luxembourg, Brazil, Iran, Nigeria, as well as Maori, Assyrians, Gurkhas, Free Poles, and others. Knowing the lines drawn 40 years ago between sides will enable anyone to understand better national enmities and relations today.
