BATTLE IN AFRICA:1879-1914
Second edition is edited by John Curry as part of the History of Wargaming Project series of books.
Battle in Africa is a uniquely vivid analysis of colonial campaigning in the late-Victorian and Edwardian eras. Edited by Paddy Griffith, the author Howard Whitehouse guides the reader systematically through each stage of an African campaign, from the formulation of strategy to the fate of the wounded, and from the collection of supplies to the tactics of guerrilla warfare. He also offers a long-overdue comparative approach, which describes the Belgian, German, and Italian experiences as well as the better-known French and British ... and he gives a rare emphasis to the perceptions of the indigenous African 'enemy'. Illustrated throughout by Peter Dennis - who is himself a keen student of these campaigns - in an appropriately 'period' style.
