9781107053205: Africa and World War II
Revue de presse :

'For Africans, World War II began in 1935 with Italy's invasion of Ethiopia, and it lasted well beyond 1945, as Africans demanded that their contributions and sacrifices for the Allied war effort be recognized. Africa and World War II brings together well-researched and compelling accounts by accomplished scholars, exploring not only the importance of Africans' roles as soldiers and producers, but the war's effects on class, race, and gender relations. This collection makes clear the importance of the war in provoking a crisis in colonial empires and transforming the nature of political mobilization across the African continent.' Frederick Cooper, author of Citizenship between Empire and Nation: Remaking France and French Africa, 1945–1960

'A seminal book marking a new stage in studies of the Second World War in Africa. These wide-ranging essays offer new ideas, insights, and analyses of the pervasive impact of the Second World War throughout the continent. Here are model macro- and micro-studies to stimulate further research on this important period of Africa's recent past.' David Killingray, School of Advanced Study, University of London

'Lest we forget, this book reminds us of the vital role that African men and women and African resources played in winning a supposedly good war. Often seen simply as forerunner to decolonization, the Second World War had its own African history. It conscripted sweated African labor, female and male; it recruited African masculinity into a racial equality of sacrifice while denying it equality of esteem; it opened African eyes to the possibilities of a different world. This comprehensive collection portrays a war fought not only on many frontlines but also, and with more lasting significance, in households and communities far behind them.' John Lonsdale, Professor Emeritus, University of Cambridge

'The editors merit high praise indeed for assembling this large and impressive collection. The volume sheds much new light on the remarkably neglected African dimension of the 'global' war of 1939–1945. The authors of the various essays demonstrate how events north and south of the Sahara affected the outcome of the conflict, and also how the economic, political, and cultural developments of the period affected profoundly the lives of Africans, men and women alike.' Evan Mawdsley, University of Glasgow

'This book offers a very substantial contribution to an understanding of both the significant role of African peoples and resources in Allied victory in World War II and of the impact of the war on the peoples of the continent.' Gerhard L. Weinberg, Professor Emeritus, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
