A delightfully illustrated and accessible book
This book is illustrated very much in the neat style familiar from the WRG Armies & Enemies series by the same illustrator, but also contains many maps and illustrations form the period.
The detailed text provides the dress, arms, organisation, and tactics of the protagonists, and includes sections on the foreign explorers and the forces of the British and German East African colonies.
Principally covering Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, and Zanzibar, this volume deals with the native peoples of East Africa and the Arabs and Europeans who variously fought, explored, and raided there in the course of the 19th century.
The book is beautifully bound with a sumptuous brown linen cover embossed with gold figures. All printed on cream rag paper, giving the feel and quality of volume from the past.
