"This huge work by Moyse-Bartlett stands head and shoulders
above anything else ever written about East African soldiers.
A superb book (Perkins). The King's African Rifles (KAR) was a
multi-battalion British colonial regiment raised from Britain's
various possessions in East Africa from 1902 until independence
in the 1960s. It performed both military and internal security functions
within the colonial territories, and served outside these territories
during the World Wars. The rank and file (askaris) were drawn
from native inhabitants, while most of the officers were seconded
from the British Army. When the KAR was first raised there were
some Sudanese officers in the battalions raised in Uganda, and native
officers were commissioned towards the end of British colonial rule."
