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. Examining the experiences of Britain, France, Belgium, Portugal, and Italy, this work offers an original study of the military processes of conquest. Analyzing both indigenous and imperial perspectives, the author explores how the historical memory of conquest and resistance have shaped the evolution of modern African identity. Wars of Imperial Conquest in Africa, 1830-1914 provides a unique survey for students of imperial, commonwealth, and military history, as well as African history.
