This is a very detailed study of the movement of the various French columns through modern Eastern Senegal and Mali. The “battles” were short and though quickly fought, good detail is given. It talks about the difficulties encountered, not only from hostile Muslim natives, but the terrain and wildlife. It also discusses the various tribes and their interactions, as well as their conquest by invading Muslim tribes prior to the French invasion.
