Then Lieuten ant Colonel Brisset, a famous French African pioneer, set. out south from this place, having under his command young native recruits with only a few white officers. His objective was the town of Mora, situated on a high plateau. Several fruitless attempts were made to storm the position. Then the Germans were surrounded and, leaving a small force of besiegers, Lieutenant Colonel Bris set continued south toward the town of Maroua. On his way he met a German force coming to the relief of Mora'and a fierce fight ensued. The Germans were forced to retreat to ward Maroua, which was taken by the French on Deceaaber 12, 1914, but without preventing the German com mander, Captain von Duhring, from escaping with his men in the direction of Garoua. The Germans now seem to have concentrated their forces for a last stand in the stronghold of Garoua, which was besieged five ...
