    AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN

    Book ID/图书代码: 01079020C00279

    English Summary/英文概要: At the Going Down of the Sun is a comprehensive account of British campaigns in Africa during the Great War (1914-18). Author Rob Gladding is a former serviceman in both the army and navy, and his first-hand experience of the armed forces, alongside his commitment to and academic achievements in history, are evident in his writing which details places, dates, battles and units in impressive detail.After setting the scene with the assassination of Austria’s Archduke Franz Ferdinand that led to the outbreak of World War I, the book gives an account of British military operations up until 1920, including the British conquest of German East Africa on the slopes of Mount Kilimanjaro between 1914 and 1917, the Senussi Campaign in North Africa and the Sudan between 1915 and 1917, and the Guerrilla warfare conflicts that erupted in German East Africa (present day Tanzania, Burundi and Rwanda) in 1916.The reader gains a clear, unadorned account of soldiers’ hardships: the burden that lay on these men to change history despite the fact that most of them had little influence over the conflicts they were caught up in; and their courage to fight, die and be wounded for what they believed was right.
