Lettow-Vorbeck's Soldiers by Walther Dobbertin.  143 pages, 120 photos, 7' by 10' hardcover format.  $59.95  Originally published in 1932 in Germany as Die Soldaten Lettow-Vorbeck, this is a dual language (English/German) reprint edition.  Dobbertin was a commerical photographer in German East Africa prior to WWI.  When all of the German men were mobilized in August 1914 to defend the colony, Dobbertin became, in effect, the only combat photographer on the German side.  He performed this function until his own capture in 1916.  Lettow-Vorbeck's Soldiers contains 120 of the best photos from that campaign.  It is particularly important for showing black German soldiers in action.
