TIP AND RUN

By Edward Paice

(Subject: World War I - Other Theatres) In the aftermath of the Great War the East Africa campaign was destined to be dismissed by many in Britain as a remote 'sideshow'. But to other combatant powers - Germany, South Africa, India, Belgium and Portugal - it was a campaign of huge importance. In August 1914 Britain moved to eliminate the threat to the high seas of German naval bases in Africa. But two weeks after the Armistice was signed in Europe British and German troops were still fighting in Africa after four years of war.

GALLIPOLI

By Alan Moorehead

(Subject: World War I - Other Theatres) Moorehead's excellent history of the campaign, which took place in the Dardanelles between April 1915 and January 1916.

Russia's allies, Britain and France, launched a naval attack followed by an amphibious landing on the peninsula with the aim of capturing Constantinople. After eight months' fighting, with many casualties on both sides, the land campaign failed and the invasion force was withdrawn. The campaign was one of the greatest Ottoman victories during the war and a major Allied failure. Good in brown boards no d/w. Signature on endpaper map.

A MAD CATASTROPHE

By Geoffrey Wawro

(Subject: World War I - Other Theatres) The Austro-Hungarian army that confronted the Russians and Serbs in the opening campaigns of World War I had a glorious past, but speaking a mystifying array of languages and lugging outdated weapons, they were hopelessly unprepared. After the assassination of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand in June 1914, Germany goaded the Empire into war. With the Germans massing their forces in the west, everything hinged on the Habsburgs ability to crush Serbia and keep the Russians at bay. However, commanded by a dying emperor, Franz Joseph I, and a celebrity general, Conrad von Hotzendorf, the Austro-Hungarians managed to bungle everything. By the end of 1914, the Habsburg army lay in ruins.

MY REMINISCENCES OF EAST AFRICA

By General Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck

(Subject: World War I - Other Theatres) The recollections of the German Commanding General in German East Africa in World War I. He conducted a remarkable guerilla campaign, and only surrendered two weeks after the German collapse in 1918.

His forces never consisted of more than 3000 Germans and 11,000 Askaris, whilst his opponents had over 100,000 men in the field from the British, Indian, South African, French, Belgian and Portuguese armies.
