Indische Legion Troops Manning Artillery, France, 1944

"It is doubtful that Subhas Chandra Bose envisaged the Free India Legion would ever be an army sufficient or strong enough to conduct a campaign across Persia into India on its own. Instead, the IR 950 was to become the pathfinder, and would precede a larger Indo-German force in a Caucasian campaign into the western frontiers of British India, that would encourage public resentment of the Raj and incite the British Indian Army into revolt."
