Focusing on Senegal, Lunn provides a unique perspective for assessing the range of the war's impact on West Africans. Based on the testimony of 85 African witnesses or veterans of the First World War and extensive archival research, Lunn's book offers novel insights into the nature of the prewar colonial order, the soldiers' service overseas, and how the experience altered many African soldiers' previous attitudes about themselves, their societies, and the French.
