"Engrossing ... A story of the nightmare shaped by European fantasies and lethally visited on African societies" Higel Fountain, Guardian

"Now the bloody campaign in Africa has the history and the historian it deserves. Edward Paice has written a superb account that is as moving as it is incisive. His achievement is to take this 'forgotten' campaign and make it seem central not just to the First World War, but to the tragedy that would enfold sub-Saharan Africa through out the rest of the century. Tip and Run is a magnificent achievement" Richard Aldous, Irish Times.

Edward Paice is Director of Africa Research Institute. He is the author of Youthquake, why African demography should matter to the world; Lost Lion of Empire: The life of 'Cape-to-Cairo' Grogan and Wrath of God: The Great Lisbon Earthquake of 1755.
