Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck (born 20 March 1870), nicknamed the "Lion of Africa" (German: Der Löwe von Afrika) is a German general, politician, and colonial administrator. Lettow-Vorbeck is best known for his guerrilla campaign in Africa against Entente forces during the Weltkrieg, where he was essentially undefeated in the field for the entire war. He went on to serve as the first Statthalter of the Freistaat Mittelafrika from 1925 to 1934, before returning to Germany to pursue a domestic political career.
