"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.
