Africa Research Institute invites you to:
 
How the Great War
Razed East Africa


Monday 10th November 2014 from 5.30pm to 7pm

Edward Paice
Director, Africa Research Institute
Author of Tip and Run: The Untold Tragedy of the Great War in Africa
 
This year is the centenary of the outbreak of the “war to end all wars”. Commemorations to remember those killed in World War I have taken place across Europe but one important theatre tends to be overlooked – Africa.

The East Africa campaign engulfed 750,000 square miles – an area three times the size of the German Reich â€“ as 150,000 Allied troops sought to defeat a German force whose strength never exceeded 25,000. Its financial cost to the Allies was comparable to that of the Boer War, Britain’s most expensive conflict since the Napoleonic Wars. The official British death toll exceeded 105,000 troops and military carriers. But it was civilian populations throughout East Africa who suffered worst of all in this final phase of the “Scramble for Africa”.

On the eve of Remembrance Day, join us on November 10th to hear Edward elaborate on points raised in ARI’s recent publication, How the Great War Razed East Africa.

This is a joint event with the Africa APPG.
