The Anglo-Kuki War 1917-1919: A Frontier Uprising Against Imperialism During World War I, Thongkholal Haokip 2017 Jawaharlal Nehru University

The Anglo-Kuki War 1917-1919: A Frontier Uprising Against Imperialism During World War I, Thongkholal Haokip

Thongkholal Haokip

One hundred years ago, when other parts of India was busy collecting combatants, non-combatants, labourers, funds and materials for the Great War, the Kukis of the Northeastern frontier of India declared ‘war against the King-Emperor’.

influence on her leadership as well. I will also describe ...
