From the introduction: When the Herero War broke out in January 1904 the German Schutztruppe found that their maps of the country were inadequate. The General staff in Berlin commisioned the urgent compilation of a map that would provide the most comprehensive information available. The outcome within five weeks was a complete map of the country. In April and August 1897.The map was reprinted as volume 6 of the National Archives Publication series Archaeia.
