EDITORS COMMENTS
This print captures a map titled "Colonial possessions in East Africa during the First World War, c1916" from the book "The Great World War: A History". Created by an unknown artist around 1920, this historical document provides a visual representation of the territorial divisions in East Africa during that tumultuous time. The map showcases various colonial possessions including German East Africa, British East Africa, the Belgian Congo, Rhodesia, Uganda, Nyasaland Protectorate, and Mozambique (Portuguese East Africa). It also highlights the positions of combatant armies involved in this conflict. The intricate arrows depict movement and strategic planning on both sides. With its detailed depiction of geographical features such as lakes Tanganyika and Victoria along with coastal regions like Mombasa in Kenya, this map offers valuable insights into the complexities of colonialism and imperialism prevalent during that era. Notably present is General Jan Christiaan Smuts who played a significant role as Field Marshal on the front lines. As we observe this image today, it serves as a reminder of how boundaries were redrawn and power dynamics shifted during times of war. This photograph not only documents history but also invites us to reflect upon the impact these events had on shaping nations and their relationships within the African continent.
