German South West Africa

Welcome to the Imperial Research section on World War One war in Africa.

The purpose of this section is to give researchers and collectors information that may help them with their studies on the campaigns. The first item on the agenda is a subject that has frustrated me many times in the past, an order of battle for the rebellion and for the campaign in German South West Africa. It contains units of lesser interest (Staff, Administration, etc.) but some of great interest to the collector (e.g. the sections on the Commandos and Mounted Brigades).

It features a transcription of an official history of the campaign in G.S.W.A. that never made it to publication and a roll of officers who served in the Mounted Brigades in German East Africa.

This section will be under constant reconstruction, the progress will be (hopefully) slow but sure.

If you have any questions please post them at the following forum:
