AFRICAN KAISER

By Robert Gaudi

(Subject: World War I - General) General Paul Von Lettow-Vorbeck and the Great War in Africa, 1914-1918.As World War I ravaged the European continent, a completely different theater of war was being contested in Africa. And from this very different kind of war, there emerged a very different kind of military leader. With the now-legendary Schutztruppe (Defensive Force), von Lettow-Vorbeck and a small cadre of hardened German officers fought alongside their fanatically devoted native African allies as equals, creating the first truly integrated army of the modern age. Von Lettow-Vorbeck was the last undefeated German field commander of the war.

ZEPPELINS OVER THE MIDLANDS

By Mick Powis

(Subject: World War I - General) On 31st January 1916 nine Zeppelins of the Imperial German Navy bombed the Midlands, opening a strategic bombing campaign designed to cripple British war production. It ended in total failure. The main target was Liverpool but none of the Zeppelins reached it. On foggy Monday night several major Midlands towns were bombed and 70 people killed. A lot is known about the military aspects of the raids but much less is known about what happened on the ground. Through intensive research the author has been able to identify many of the victims and give the full story of these events for the first time.

HITLER'S FIRST WAR

By Thomas Weber

(Subject: World War I - General) The author paints a portrait of Hitler's unit, The Bavarian List Regiment, during World War I to rewrite the story of his military service. He refutes Hitler's account and so challenges the historical argument that the war led naturally to Nazism. The regiment consisted largely of conscripts and Hitler served with scores of Jews, including noted artist Albert Weisberger. The men shunned Private Hitler as a "rear area pig" and Hitler himself was still unsure of his political views when the war ended in 1918. Through the stories of comrades, the author demonstrates how and why Hitler aggressively policed the myth of his wartime experience.
