This chapter examines the German legacies of imperialism and violence abroad, focusing on the life of military officer Hans Paasche. It discusses German colonial violence in Africa and how that violence was transposed to the home front. It also explains the impact of the Great War on national politics, the relief of Paasche from marine command for failure to obey orders over a disciplinary offence, his efforts to bring the war to an early end and the change in his fate after the fall of the monarchy and German defeat.

Keywords:   German violence, imperialism, Hans Paasche, colonial violence, Africa, Great War, national politics
