Abstract:This article deals with the German period (1885-1919) of Tanganyika's history. It is an interim judgment only because far too little has yet come to light of the necessary evidence for a complete and true picture. The story is divided into 4 periods: I Beginnings - diplomatic history of the Imperial Charter, 1885, and Bismarck's machinations there after - early German colonists led by Dr. Peters and Von Wissman surrender of control to the German Foreign Office, 1891; II 'Pacification'- further operations of the German military forces, with developments in administrative and economic spheres, till the Maji-Maji rebellion and the elections for the Reichstag; III 'Scientific colonisation' - 1907 to 1914 (Dernberg, Solf, von Rechenberg, Schnee); IV 'Great War' - military and economic aspect; Von Lettow Vorbeck Bibliography.
