'We will all melt like ice-cream in the sun!'
British soldier, East Africa, 1914

On the Western Front millions are being slaughtered. But in East Africa a ridiculous and utterly ignored campaign is being waged - one that continues after the Armistice because no one bothers to tell the participants to stop.

As the conflict sweeps up Africans and colonials, those left at home and those fighting abroad find themselves unable to escape the tide of history bearing down on them.
