5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on a forgotten front, July 27, 2011
This review is from: Lettow-Vorbeck's Soldiers (Great War Series, 88) (Hardcover)
If you are even remotely interested in the Great War in Africa you should get this book. I have read Guerilla, the story of von Lettow's campaign in East Africa and several other books which deal with the fighting between colonial forces. This book includes some information about the Great War but it also has some great photos which brought the campaign alive for me. Askaris, von Prince, Tanga... it is one thing to read about them and another to SEE them. This collection of photos is unique and well worth the money. Also includes information on Walther Dobbertin, the photographer who took these pictures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A large and rare collection of photos, February 1, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lettow-Vorbeck's Soldiers (Great War Series, 88) (Hardcover)
The book has a rare collection of photos of German forces in East Africa,. The German colonial forces called Schutztruppe, fought bravely without receiving virtually no support from Germany.

The most interesting are the photos of German reservists, composed by the German population of the colony, who enlisted in Schutztruppe.
