The Great War in Africa is very interesting. I don’t know a lot about it. I know enough about it to know that I want to start reading about it in depth someday. This is a very interesting title I’ll have to get a copy.

It was an interesting title for sure. I was very impressed and fascinated with Von Lettow-Vorbeck’s intelligence and the military tactics that he successfully put to use. What he envisioned and planned definitely worked and he achieved the results he sought.
