all you colonial buffs -- i am looking for some detailed referernces on the fahsoda incident for a what if ..? wargaming scenario. anything with details about specifically who marchand brought to the fight and who bonchamps didn't bring to the fight (part of the "what if" ... what if bonchamps had arrived and the french had an overwhelming (instead of superior) land force?). most of the references i have found (while very good reads) focus on the dimplomatic solution that actually happened, and thus, leave out details that would have been relevant had there been a battle for fashoda.
