The First World War in Africa: A Bibliography
Corfield, Justin


This work addresses the lack of research on events in Africa during the First World War. The author cites nearly two thousand articles, archives, books, journals, and government and public records related to the topic, all of which are subject to four extensive indices providing comprehensive cross references.


"The result of Justin Corfield’s painstaking research provides those interested in Africa generally a unique opportunity to study a short but important period of the continent’s history. This period is especially interesting considering what has happened in Africa since 1919, much of it triggered by the changing attitudes of the colonial powers and their demise, as well as the rise of national independence leaders during and after the war.” –Dr. Mathew A. White, F.R.S.A., A.F.A.I.M., M.A.C.E., Fellow in the Faculty of Education, University of Melbourne, Geelong Grammar School, Australia
