Wadai War 1909-1911

[ 1909 - 1911 ]

During the French colonial wars in Africa, French forces, between 1909 and 1911, conquered the Wadai, a mountainous, arid region in eastern Chad and central Sudan.

Wadai... In the 19th century, caravans abandoned other trails across the desert in favour of the Abéché-Banghazi route because it was safer, thanks to the regional stability achieved by a series of strong Wadai kings, or kolaks (al-Sharif, 1835-58; Ali, 1858-74; and Yusuf, 1874-98). French occupation between 1906 and 1914 put an end to the trans-Saharan trade.
