Books on North Africa 2: The Passing of the Shereefian Empire

I somehow missed the following book in my previous post.  The link below takes you to The Passing of the Shereefian Empire by war correspondent Ellis Ashmead-Bartlett.  This is another great account of the 1907 French Intervention in Morocco.  It is much longer than the other two I referenced a couple of days ago.  I browsed some pages and noted several mentions again of the Foreign Legion as well as well written accounts of some of the combat around Casablanca.  The author gains interviews with Abdul Aziz (the deposed ruler of Morocco) and Moulai el Hafid (the new ruler) and covers a two year period of events.  He also gives some insight into the Spanish situation in their small coastal enclaves.  Again, like the other two books, it is another out of copyright book so if you don’t mind reading on your computer screen the price is just right.  (I have downloaded so many digital books I’m wondering if it is time for a tablet device.)
