Thank you for the article. FFL is a favorite subject of mine. I can't help but wonder what motivated those men to go out there and hold that ground. It's a desert for god sake!

The French were establishing and defending their Empire.
Trade routes etc... had to be secured, restless natives had to be subdued.
