Lecture by Richard A. Lobban, Jr., Ph.D.

[/et_pb_text][et_pb_text _builder_version=”4.4.1″ text_font_size=”20px”]Richard Lobban sets the stage of World War II Africa by discussing the political and military situation on the continent before the war, Africa’s occupation and “effective control” after the Berlin Congress, and the partition of Africa. Lobban also explains the unintended consequences of the war on African nationalism and independence after Africans acquired military experience and learned about armed struggles for independence.

Dr. Richard Lobban is an Adjunct Professor of African Studies at the Naval War College.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][/et_pb_row][/et_pb_section]
