"An eminently readable and useful treatment of the military's role in the European colonialization... an interesting, sometimes fascinating, account of conflict in Africa... " — Parameters

"There is no comparable work. None covers as broad a topic — the experience of colonial wars of all the imperial powers and at the same time a consideration of the African wars of resistance against the imperial attacks." — William B. Cohen, Indiana University

This path-breaking work investigates the social, economic, and political impact of the European colonial wars in Africa on both the victors and the vanquished.

William B. Cohen

There is no comparable work. None covers as broad a topic -- the experience of colonial wars of all the imperial powers and at the same time a consideration of the African wars of resistance against the imperial attacks. -- William B. Cohen
