Format: Paperback
There are several good accounts written about the First World War in East Africa between the British forces maily based in Kenya and the Germans in Tanganyika, in particular Tip and Run by Edward Paice and Battle for the Bundu by Charles Miller. The German forces were under the command of Von Lettow-Vorbeck, who despite being greatly outnumbered by the British, succeeded in being undefeated at the end of the war, having been chased and harried throughout German East Africa, Mozambique and finally Rhodesia. This account based on the diaries of Von Lettow-Vorbeck perhaps presents a more accurate picture of events as seen from the other side and gives a different perspective of the huge casualties encountered by the British compared with the Germans. It also debunks some of the rumours about the treatment of allied prisoners by the Germans who in general treated their prisoners far better than many German prisoners received by the opposing side. This book contains in part perhaps too much detail of statistics relating to stores,weaponry and personnel which are probably of interest only to the military historian, but as a general record of the unfolding events of the time it presents a facinating insight into the character of an extraordinary protagonist who was much admired and respected by his opponents.

It is very well written, Paul von Lettow's memeories of his time in German East Africa (Tangayka).
My fater and my uncles knw him well during the 1914-1918 war in Tanganyka.
The book is well written and gives detailed account of the war in Tanganyika.

Don't get me wrong, the writing is fine but the book must have been published and printed by someone who has no idea of English as a language. My guess this is published ilegally somewhere in the far east?
