    GWASL 13: GERMAN EAST AFRICA
    German East Africa and Askaris

    Another fascinating era in Great War military history is represented by the German East African Campaign. It was the setting of the famous movie, ‘The African Queen’, and devolved into a series of battles and guerrilla warfare clashes, which started in German East Africa and spread to Mozambique, Northern Rhodesia, British East Africa, Uganda and the Belgian Congo. Before the campaign ended in November 1917, Germans and their Adskari clients kept the drumbeats of war going on the dark continent with the aim of tying down Allied soldiers, keeping the latter away from the battlefields of Europe. After the sinking of the Pegasus, the British salvaged and used six 4 inch (100mm) guns from the ship, which became known as the ‘Peggy guns’. Meanwhile, the crew of sunken Königsberg, and its 4.1 inch (100mm) guns, were folded into the Schutztruppe. The British reinforced. The Belgians reinforced. The German commander Lettow-Vorbeck fought a costly battle at Mahiwa, with 519 German casualties and 2,700 British casualties in the Nigerian brigade. This faraway theater saw some of the most dramatic fighting, amidst some of the world’s most stirring terrain, during World War I.
