A superbly written history of one of the quixotic ways the British fought WW1 that later gave rise to C.S.Forester's The African Queen and the movie of the same name, it's a devastating portrayal of British vs. Belgian & German military people at the time. The book concludes with Foden's search of the area for details surviving a century after the conflict, with notes on the making of the movie. A fun read throughout.
