Are there any photographs or artistic depictions of this?

Not just the battle specifically but of fighting against the Fulanis in general.

Hello Texas Jäger,

I found a German book with, maybe with further answers of your request; - of course only in German.
But if you activate the text editor, you can copy, paste and translate this via Google translator.

Adamaua : Bericht über die Expedition des Deutschen Kamerun-Komitees in den Jahren 1893/94 / von Siegfried Passarge
https://brema.suub.uni-bremen.de/dsdk/c ... fo/2157143
Here the direct link: file:///C:/Users/Expert/AppData/Local/Temp/Adamaua.pdf 668 pages, 109 MB, PDF.

For photos please have a look at the `Colonial Picture Archive of the University in Frankfurt´:

By “Place” put in “Kamerun” and then “Search”. There you will find 1842 photos about German Cameroun

Cheers Holger
