Publisher's Summary

Discover the remarkable history of the Mau Mau Rebellion....

The Mau Mau Rebellion took place in Kenya, beginning in 1952. A group of native Kenyan peoples, mostly from the Kikuyu tribe, rose up against their British colonizers, who had held the region since 1895.

With a complicated story, it can be difficult to place the Mau Mau Uprising within the larger history of Kenyan nationalism and nationhood. Regardless of nuance, though, its importance in the history of Kenya, Africa, and British colonialism cannot be understated. This is the complete history of the Mau Mau Rebellion.

Discover a plethora of topics, such as:

  • Background and Causes
  • The Desire for Freedom
  • The British Respond: Operation Anvil
  • Brutality and War Crimes
  • The End of the Rebellion
  • Legacy
  • And much more!

Brief but Informative

As promised by the group's name "Hourly History" this book gives you the basic foundation of the Mau-Mau Rebellion in less than an hour. If you have never heard of this impactful rebellion before, you will walk away informed enough to have a brief conversation about it.

There is much that has been glossed over or simplified for the sake of time and I highly recommend the various memoirs and history publications that go further in-depth on the topic and the parties involved for further information.

A good, swift, but effective read.
