The Fashoda War was a series of skirmishes between British and French troops in what is now South Sudan over disputed claims on colonial territory, occuring in late 1898. Following a French expedition to Fashoda on the White Nile river which aimed to exclude the British from Sudan, an Anglo-Egyptian army mainly under the command of Sir Herbert Kitchener engaged the French army in Fashoda in a series of large skirmishes across southern Sudan, resulting in a greater deterioration of Anglo-French relations.
