Item description for Kariakor. The Carrier Corps. The Story of the Military Labour Forces in the Conquest of German East Africa, 1914-1918 by Geoffrey Hodges...

The Carrier Corps carried everything the soldiers needed to survive during the East African Campaign of the first World War. The Corps suffered heavier casualties than all the other units put together. Originally published in 1986, this second edition has been re-written by the author, keeping much of the original material, but adding new information which has come to light since the work was first published. Much of the original research was based on the reminiscences of the men who took part. Photographs and statistics enhance the six chapters covering African labour; the war strategy; in the battlefields; carrier units; carrier welfare and effects of the war.

Reviews - What do customers think about Kariakor. The Carrier Corps. The Story of the Military Labour Forces in the Conquest of German East Africa, 1914-1918?

The misuse of those who were vital...  Feb 22, 2007
Kariakor by Geoffrey Hodges chronicles the mistreatment of thousands of conscripted African labourers; these people carried everything that was vitally needed by the British, South African and Indian Armies in their campaign against the Germans in East Africa during World War One. In a war between two imperial, european nations, these African consripts provided a vital service. They were shot at, ignored, not provided with uniforms and didn't receive recognition of their efforts and valour. This book addresses all of this and more. It is recommended for those interested in World War One in Africa; in European imperialism and in unique military units.
