The Conquest of the Cameroons, First World War, 1914-1916

EDITORS COMMENTS
. This print showcases a detailed map depicting the remarkable events that unfolded during the conquest of German Cameroon in the First World War. Created around 1920 by an unknown artist, this historical piece offers a glimpse into a significant chapter in African colonial history. The map vividly illustrates how General Charles Macpherson Dobell's main columns, accompanied by French columns under Colonel Mayer (marked as A), played a crucial role in clearing the colony of German troops. Additionally, it highlights French southern columns (B), Franco-Belgian columns from French Equatorial Africa and Belgian Congo (C), Franco-British columns led by Brigadier-General Frederick Hugh Cunliffe (D), and Lieutenant-Colonel Brisset's Northern column (E). These combined forces strategically worked to reclaim control over this African territory. Notably depicted on this map is the escape route taken by the retreating German main force into Spanish Guinea. This visual representation provides valuable insight into both military tactics employed during warfare and geographical aspects of West Africa at that time. Taken from "The Great World War: A History" edited by Frank A Mumby, Volume V, this print serves as an educational resource for those interested in understanding the complexities of imperialism and colonialism during this era. It stands as a testament to human resilience and determination amidst one of history's most devastating conflicts – World War I.
