Product Description

Review

Stapleton has made the most of the fragmented sources to rescue the Rhodesia Native Regiment from undeserved neglect in the scholarly literature on Africa in the First World War. His account not only painstakingly reconstructs the RNR s operations in the East Africa campaign but in the process throws a searching light on the nature of the racist Southern Rhodesian state that recruited the RNR, and empathetically probes what military service meant for the African soldiers themselves. This book contributes significantly to our understanding of the nature of the Great War in Africa. --John Laband, Wilfrid Laurier University, author of "The Transvaal Rebellion: The First Boer War 1880-1881""

By A Customer on 22 Mar. 2006
Even before the book is out the web page is wrong. There were a number of very able African units in East Africa in World War One. Foremost is probably the Gold Coast Regiment, followed by the Nigerian Regiment and the excellent local force the Kings African Rifles. That is not to mention the best African force - the Schutztruppe of DOA (German East Africa). There is a new short press run book on them. For the first time in English/German Walther Dobbertin's 'Lettow-Vorbeck's Soldiers' - the first German edition from 1932 is a very scarce book.
