The main thrust of this study is that throughout the process of partition, African nations tried hard to check the tidal wave of European assault. What served as the decisive factor in these encounters were the superiority of Europeans’ weapons, in addition to such factors as fraudulent treaties of friendship, the role of missionaries and traders, divide-and-conquer strategies, and direct military interventions.
