I have a couple of questions why was Volume II of Military East Africa not written? Also I believe the Germans also wrote the first but not the second volume of their official history of the East African campaign?

The first volume was not completed until 1941 and of course there was a war on.

I cannot confirm but it is likelyt hat the documents and records required were moved into safe storage for the duration of the war.

Afterwards of course there was a new history to be written.

Sorry more mundane reason. The writing of the Great War Official History carried on in new premises during the Second World War and the draft for Volume II was prepared and parts circulated for comments, both it and the comments survive at the NA. One of the authors Stacke died in 1935, and if IRC correctly something happened to Horden too, and he left the CID in 1941.
