Summary: "During the Great War of 1914-1918, the French army sent more than 500,000 colonial subjects to European battlefields. The struggle against a common enemy linked these soldiers with the French nation, but racial and cultural differences nonetheless left them on the outside. Employing a socially and culturally integrated approach to the history of warfare, Richard S. Fogarty presents a fresh picture of how the French came to deal with race relations, religious differences, and French identity itself."--P. [4] of cover.
