110 years after the up-rising of the Herero nation in German South-West-Africa, an interesting book was published by Glanz & Gloria Verlag . It covers the story of the very first "Armoured-Train" in German military history. It is in the true sense of the word a "Eisenbahnerbuch" but not only...
When the war broke out and the German settlement Okahandja was besieged by the Herero, a train was sent from the coastal town Swakopmund in aid of their countrymen in Okahandja. It was an extremely difficult task, from Karibib onward, the Herero had the railway-lines sabotaged, which means the train only could move slowly to avoid accidents or even a disaster. En route they had to repair rails while being shot at from Herero in the dense bush...This book was written by Walter Paschasius, who was part of this expedition under the leadership of Oberleutnant von Zülow. This book is available at Militariaverlag Weber office@militariafachbuch.de or at Namibiana Buchdepot, buchdepot@namibiana.de, both located in Germany.
