MY REMINISCENCES OF EAST AFRICA
by General Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck

The recollections of the German Commanding General in German East Africa in World War I. He conducted a remarkable guerilla campaign, and only surrendered two weeks after the German collapse in 1918. His opponent for much of the campaign was an equally famous name in the annals of guerilla warfare - Jan Christaan Smuts - but von Lettow proved more than a match for his Boer opposite number. His forces never consisted of more than 3000 Germans and 11,000 Askaris, whilst his opponents had over 100,000 men in the field from the British, Indian, South African, French, Belgian and Portuguese armies.

GALLIPOLI
by Alan Moorehead

Moorehead's excellent history of the campaign, which took place in the Dardanelles between April 1915 and January 1916. The Gallipoli Peninsula formed the northern bank of a strait that provided a sea route into Russia. Russia's allies, Britain and France, launched a naval attack followed by an amphibious landing on the peninsula with the aim of capturing Constantinople. After eight months' fighting, with many casualties on both sides, the land campaign failed and the invasion force was withdrawn. The campaign was one of the greatest Ottoman victories during the war and a major Allied failure. Good in brown boards no d/w. Signature on endpaper map.

TIP AND RUN
by Edward Paice

In the aftermath of the Great War the East Africa campaign was destined to be dismissed by many in Britain as a remote 'sideshow'. But to other combatant powers - Germany, South Africa, India, Belgium and Portugal - it was a campaign of huge importance. In August 1914 Britain moved to eliminate the threat to the high seas of German naval bases in Africa. But two weeks after the Armistice was signed in Europe British and German troops were still fighting in Africa after four years of war.
