German colonial rule in the region was short—30 years in the Marshalls and only 15 years everywhere else—but it made a significant impact on most island groups. This short work reviews the major accomplishments of the Germans in each island group. It also offers photographs of the period, many previously unpublished, from the German Capuchin Archives.
