As the war in Europeanpe dragged to its conclusion in 1917-18, Gandhi began tramping  about India, recruiting men for the British Army. Although his dreams of home rule had  grown stronger, he was still loyal to Britain and to the ideals of the British Constitution,  with which he later declared to have "fallen in love." But the Indian people, having  listened to him preach non-violence and resistance to unjust authority, had a difficult  time accepting him in the role of recruitment officer–how, they wondered, could the  apostle of peace ask them to take up arms in defense of the Raj? Wearied from his  journey, he fell ill with dysentery; it was his first serious illness, and he resolutely resisted  treatment, preferring his own regimen. As a result he spent a long time as a  convalescent.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
