Paul von Lettow-Vorbeck Online and On the Small Screen

In a world full of political memes and Elf on a Shelf  pictures, my Facebook feed uncovered a decently written overview on Major General Paul Von Lettow-Vorbeck.   It's extremely biased article, even compared to other pro-German articles.  Von-Lettow Vorbeck was no saint compared to modern standards, but compared to his British opponents, he was a far fairer to most of the non-white troops he commanded. 

... and in a semi-related topic, who knew he was a character in The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles?
