Abstract: The 'Great War' had a major impact on Africa and that is visible in the post stamps used in the various postal territories in Africa. This paper discusses the postal offices, postal services, and stamps used in the German colony Deutsch-Sdwestafrika (SWA) during the early twentieth century. For the postal history of the First World War in the German colonies Togo, Kamerun and Deutsch-Ostafrika/German East Africa (GEA), see the ASC working papers 116, 117 and 119.
