News from Dec 07, 2015
The International Conference “Experiences of the Great War in Africa”, organised by “1914-1918-online” contributors Anne Samson and Ana Paula Pires, will be held at The National Archives, Kew, London from 3-4 May 2016.
1916 was a significant year for the Great War in Africa: Salaita and the British allied invasion into German East Africa or the loss of Cameroon to the Allies and the subsequent use of West African forces in East Africa, to name but a few major events. For this reason, the conference will ask how those living in Africa experienced the war, both in their own land and elsewhere.
