As World War I broke out, Africa was an important theater of conflict between the various colonial armies. Some of the earliest battles occurred in German East Africa with Belgian forces attacking from the west, British forces from the south and Indian forces from the east. An allied blockade of Dar es Salaam created major shortages in the colony. Most of the solders consisted of Africans commanded by European officers, however by 1917, the allies controlled most of German East Africa. At the end of the war, the German Colony was split up: Tanganyika was mandated to the British, Ruanda-Urundi was mandated to the Belgians, and the small area of the Kionga Triangle became part if Mozambique.
