The campaign in West Africa during the Great War is overshadowed by the more famous fight agains the elusive German genius of guerilla warfare, Gen. von Lettow-Vorbeck in East Africa. This account by the British Commander in West Africa, redresses the balance. Gorges describes the Anglo-French invasion and occupation of Togoland, Germany’s west African colony, and the more difficult and protracted operations against the German Cameroons—on land, as well as at sea. It took the Allies until January 1916 to eliminate German resistance and chase the remaining German forces into neutral territory. Profusely illustrated with maps, 191 photographs, and four appendices listing officers serving, orders of battle etc.
