There is nothing to fault with the text which covers a significant era in colonial expansion and is an excellent introduction to the role played by the Germans. The campaigns are adequately summarized, and the only fault with the book is that there is not a single map. It is doubtful most readers will be knowledgeable in the location of places mentioned in German Togo, Cameron, Southwest Africa and East Africa and some of the non-African locations. Since Osprey's editors overlooked a need for a decent map with blowups of the areas concerned, the reader should equip himself with one before reading through the text.
