Originally published as Mein Leben in German. Best known for his service in the First World War, von Lettow served as leader of the colonial force in German East Africa. This force was severely underequipped and never numbered more than about 18,000 including both Germans (mostly recruited colonials, etc.) and African troups known as askaris. They fought a well-equipped Allied force totaling the better part of a million men (East, West, and South Africans; Indians; British; and a few others from around the world who were led, at various times, by nearly 200 generals and admirals.

He was the only undefeated German general of the Great War. He was the last to surrender, and was still fighting on after the Armistice, the news of which had not reached him.
