The Campaign against the Hereros in German South West Africa ABSTRACT: The article analyzes the Herero revolt against the German colonial power in South-West Africa. This colonial war has been a relevant case-study in military doctrine. The origins of the revolt lay in the colonial expropriation of the Herero lands, which were so essential to the surviving of this population that the Hereros decided to defend them fighting. In spite of their determination and courage the Hereros were defeated by the modern equipped and trained German troops with a great number of loss of African lives in battle and after, as the consequence of drastic rules in the camps where they were drawn in. The native policy and the campaign against the Hereros represent booth the colonial violence of the expropriation of lands and the bloodiest armed repression quite near to genocide of an anticolonial revolt in XIX Century Africa
