GOLD COAST REGIMENT IN THE EAST AFRICAN CAMPAIGN

GOLD COAST REGIMENT IN THE EAST AFRICAN CAMPAIGN  


OUR PRICE: £15.00  

A book which covers the service of the Regiment in East Africa between mid-1916 and mid-1918. Very readable, and a good human interest view on the operations against von Lettow Vorbeck's Schutztruppe. Many names, European and African, are mentioned in the narrative and they are well indexed. It is a tribute to the African rank and file who played a crucial role in that war.
Afer playing a major role in the conquest of German West Africa (Togoland and the Cameroons) 1914-1916, the Gold Coast Regiment was moved to East Africa (so was the Nigeria Regiment) to take part in operations there against von Lettow-Vorbeck. It remained in that theatre till August 1918. The author was Governor of the Gold Coast from 1912 to 1919, and this account of the exploits of the Gold Coast Regiment is regarded as a classic; it combines a regimental history with a study of warfare in the bush. The period it covers has not appeared in the volumes of the Official History which dealt with the campaign from 1914 to 1916 only, ending before the regiment went into action. Index. Honours & Awards, Regimental strength (tabular format), notes on the history of the Mounted Infantry of the Gold Coast Regiment complete this history.
