He also had successful campaigns against the Herero at Okahandja and Windhoek. At the beginning of World War I, he led a successful counter-attack against Portuguese forces at Naulila, Portuguese Angola (see German campaign in Angola). On 12 November 1914, he became commander of the Schutztruppe after the death of Joachim von Heydebreck. He and 2,166 men surrendered to South African forces near on 9 July 1915. Five weeks later, South African troops controlled the entire German colony. In 1919, Franke left South West Africa, and in 1920 retired from the German Army as a Major-General. Today, the "Franke Tower" in Omaruru stands as a monument to Franke's 1904 military exploits. Three kilometres outside the town of Otavi on the Tsumeb Road is a memorial marking the German surrender at Khorab. Also, in the town of Outjo is the "Franke House Museum". (en)
