War In Paradise: The Samoan War Of 1899Streaming Video - 2015
There was a little-known war in Samoa, when armies of thousands - one side backed by the Germans and the other by the Americans and British - fought out a dynastic conflict. One notable clash was the Battle of Tagalii, when an allied force of 400 (including 118 sailors and marines) was routed by 800 foes. When the officers were killed, two NCOs took command and led the survivors to safety (four Medals of Honor were awarded). The war ended in Western Samoa becoming a German colony and Eastern Samoa an American territory.
