From the point of view of France, the Great War was more than ever global in scope. For France was then not only a republic, but also an empire with colonies on almost every continent. Within this imperial domain, French West Africa (AOF) certainly paid the heaviest tribute to the war effort. More than 160,000 soldiers, most of them engaged in units of Senegalese Riflemen, were drafted, either willingly or by force. Nearly 30,000 of them were killed or reported missing.
