This review is from: The African Wars: Warriors and Soldiers of the Colonial Campaigns (Hardcover)
Treating all colonial wars across Africa would require thousands of pages. As an introduction and overview the writer has done a pukka job in explaining the reasons for some important wars and how they were fought on both sides. It is a mostly overlooked part of common recent history between Europe and Africa and of great interest to military historians and strategists.
One particular campaign of interest is Sketches of the East Africa Campaign where there is a complex interaction between German, British and African forces.
