Over one-hundred years ago, humanity witnessed the greatest war that had ever occurred: World War I. Nearly two-million men from across Asia were recruited to fight in the war. They were Indian soldiers from remote communities, Chinese farmers from rural outposts who worked as laborers, Vietnamese fishermen participating on behalf of their French colonial masters, and Japanese sailors in service of their emperor. But today, few remember them or their sacrifices. As the world prepares to commemorate the centenary of the end of The First World War, we will examine not just Asia's contribution to the Great War, but also how the war changed Asia.
