The King’s African Rifles War Memorial in Zomba has long been a focal point of Malawi memories of the First World War. Now, Chiwaya War Voices offers a fresh perspective, with full transcripts offering a record of memories from survivors who actually recalled the Great War in Malawi.
Within a year of his arrival in Malawi as a Fulbright lecturer, Mel Page began a career of historical research focusing on the impact the First World War had on the country. These two volumes offer both a foundation and the culmination of decades devoted to this project, and are a vital supplement to his book, The Chiwaya War.
This is a two-volume set containing over 120 interviews.
