When two tribes go to war, East africa

Germany was quite late in the empire building that characterized the 19th and early 20th centuries. In Africa, the Germans colonized what is now Cameroon, Tanzania, Uganda, and Namibia. In the Pacific, they colonized portions of what is now Papua New Guinea, Nauru and the Solomon Islands.

These efforts were a source of tension between the German Empire and other European powers, especially Great Britain and France, even though Germany did not have the head start or the military resources to seriously compete along those lines. Nonetheless, these colonies provided the venue for one of the first examples of genocide in the 20th century, in what is now Namibia. Between 1904-05, the German army killed tens of thousands of rebelling Herero and Namaqua, primarily by destroying food and water sources and driving refugees into the Namib Desert. All of Germany's overseas colonies were dismantled following the end of WWI and the Versailles Treaty.

Rules were V.S. 28mm game on a 12ft by 6ft table, German force on each side of the riverbank with a riverboat in support, the idea was to get to the village, get stock and cilvilians and head back down the river.Of course the WHAA HE HE tribe was on one side of the river and the Massai tribe on the other and there was plenty of them waiting in ambush.
