'react-scripts' is not recognized as an internal or external command

I’ve got a maven project, within which is JavaScript project cloned as a git sub-module. So the directory structure looks like mavenapp/src/main/javascript/[npm project files]

Inside my package.json, the test looks like this:

"test": "react-scripts test --env=jsdom",

but when I try to run npm test, it says

‘react-scripts’ is not recognized as an internal or external command,

Interestingly, when I clone the javascript project independently I don’t get this error. I’ve tried re-running npm install.

NPM version: 5.5.1
Node.js version: 9.3.0
