Osprey Men-at-Arms 411 : Warrior Peoples of East Africa 1840-1900

Less well known than the Zulu of South Africa, the warriors of East Africa had just as fearsome a reputation. This detailed study, illustrated with rare early drawings and meticulous colour plates, covers six of most prominent tribes. The prowess of the lion-hunting Masai deterred all foreign penetration for most of the 19th century; the Ngoni, driven north by the Zulu, revolutionized warfare in the region; the HeHe put up fierce resistance to German colonisers; the Ruga-Ruga produced two formidable warlords and adorned themselves with bloody trophies; the Nandi showed reckless bravery even against machine guns; and the Turkana dominated one of the most pitiless wildernesses in all of Africa. Text by C J Peers with illustrations by Raffaele Ruggeri.
