The First World War was not just fought in the trenches of the western front. It embraced all of Africa. Many of those who fought this white man's war were black.

But it was a vast and spectacular theatre of operations and embraces the perspectives of all the nations who fought there, this is the first ever full account of the Great War in Africa.
