German South-West Africa (Deutsch-Südwestafrika) German South-West Africa (German: Deutsch-Südwestafrika) was a colony of the German Empire from 1884 until 1915. In 1915, during the First World War, German South-West Africa was invaded by the Western Allies in the shape of South African and British forces. After the war its administration was taken over by the Union of South Africa (part of the British Empire) and the territory was administered as South-West Africa under a League of Nations mandate. It finally became Namibia in 1990.
