Gen Slim led a "multinational army". That is the nearest your reviewer got to recognising the huge efforts of the Indian Army .
It is sad that in the first year of the First World War, two out of three "British soldiers" were Indian, and yet India gets no credit. In the Second World War, India made a massive contribution in Africa and Europe, again without real credit.
Of course "India" then meant Pakistan and Bangladesh too. There is a connection between today's immigrants and these brave men who answered the call to arms.
