While I've heard quite a bit about soldiers from the French North African colonies, I barely hear about French Indochina's role in the war. Did France recruit Indochinese soldiers and send them to the front? Did the war bring about any civil unrest in French Indochina? Did the French keep a significant garrison in the far east?Answered 10 months ago. Question posted by Anonymous.
We know that Von Lettow-Vorbeck and his loyal Askaris held out until the end of the war in German East Africa, but what was the stance of the local population, were they supportive of Vorbeck and the Germans, welcoming of the British or did they just not care about who won?Answered 10 months ago.
