World War 1 Battlefield Itineraries

This year 2014, marks the Centenary year to the start of World War 1 Taita Taveta County in Kenya which pitted forces from German rule Tanganyika against British forces protecting the British colonies in Kenya, Uganda and Somaliland. The first shot that signified the start of the World War 1 land campaign in the East African region was fired on 15th August, 1914 at the border town of Taveta in Taita Taveta County, Kenya. Then the Acting District Commissioner fired the shot from the then Taveta Police Station. That shot killed a German soldier whose grave is in Taveta cemetery to date. Battlefield tourism specializes in tours of battlefields, cemeteries, memorials and related historic sites all round the world. It focuses on historic battlefields where the fighting is long past and is much more strongly linked to heritage and commemoration.
