This all seems a bit of mish-mash - partly because lots of the "nations" (or nation states) arose as a result of the war, as the old empires crumbled. The template says "History of World War I by region or sovereign state" and perhaps we could have the template separated out into theatres. Also some countries were involved in the war, other countries had the war fought out on their territory. Some articles focus on military history, others are more political history or social history.Leutha (talk) 11:15, 17 June 2012 (UTC)

India's entry is entirely political; military aspects are in Indian Army during World War I and a passing comment in Royal Indian Navy. Probably needs a single joint article - India in World War I?. Andrew Gray (talk) 12:56, 18 June 2012 (UTC)
