Young’s Nyasaland Operations manuscript was entrusted to the Society of Malawi in 1955, likely in the hope the Society would benefit by its publication. Now edited with commentary and annotations by Melvin E. Page, his accounts and personal recollections are at last available to a wider readership, offering a further perspective on the Great War as experienced primarily by Nyasaland’s European population.
The Great War in Africa Association is pleased to offer this compliment to the previously published Chiwaya War Voices which provides further reflections on the First World War through the eyes of the Protectorate’s African inhabitants.
The editor, Melvin E. Page, is also the author of The Chiwaya War: Malawians in The First World War and After, now in a second edition available from Luviri Press in Malawi.
