The Forgotten Front: The East African Campaign by Ross Anderson; The First World War in Africa by Hew Strachan; Guerilla: Colonel von Lettow-Vorbeck and Germany's East African Empire by Edwin P. Hoyt; On to Kilimanjaro; the bizarre story of the First World War in East Africa by Brian Gardner; Conflict in the Colonies by Scott Foresman. In the course of my research for The Short Story and the First World War, I found short stories about the war to be moving, sad, wildly comical (both intentionally and unintentionally so), bizarre, and most of all, some topics didn’t come as a surprise – such as wartime bereavement or injury – their stylistic treatment often did.

Out of his experiences in Africa appeared "The Green Hills of Africa" and later on the two famous short stories: "The Snows of Kilimanjaro" and "The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber". Hemingway lived in Cuba for many years until the Castro Revolution in The forgotten front: East Africa The inspiration behind the Humphrey Bogart film The African Queen, the East African campaign of the First World War is the largest conflict yet to take place on African soil in terms of scale and impact.

Kilimanjaro; to the roof of Africa, by Audrey Salkeld and David Breashears Although the IMax movie is not available everywhere in the world, the book is, and it's of amazing beauty! Kilimanjaro is the highest point of Africa and therefore one of the "7 summits". The added difficulties caused by the snow are well described in Meyer’s book Across East African Glaciers. Rising at am for their first assault on the summit, Meyer and Purtscheller spent most of the morning carving a stairway out of a sheer ice-cliff, every stair laboriously hewn with an average of twenty blows of the ice axe.
