India was a key allied nation during the World War.Several Indian principle states within the British Raj provided large donations to the Allies to combat the threat of Nazism and Facism. Indian troops fought the Axis in South East Asia, North Africa and European Continent.During World War II the Indian Army became the largest all-volunteer force in history, rising to over 2.5 million men in size.These forces included tank, artillery and airborne forces. Indian soldiers won the largest number of non-British Victoria Crosses during the Second World War for their bravery. Another school of thought led by Indian Nationalist Subhas Chandra Bose of the Indian National Army (INA) allied itself with the Axix based on the principle that "An enemy's enemy is a friend". India's contribution to the allied victory was never fully recognised in spite of its massive contribution both in Men and Materials because India did not participated in the war as an independent country but as a British Coloney.
