Map of Cameroon: Brief History of The Country:

Cameroon was annexed by the Germans in 1884. German colonisation of the country did not last last as they were defeated in the country during the First World War by a joint Anglo-French Military Expedition.

After the First World War, the British and the French were given the mandate to rule Cameroon. The failure of a joint administration by these two countries resulted to the partition of Cameroon.

Britain received one fifth of the territory and administered her own part of the territory as part of the Eastern Region of Nigeria. France administered her own part of the territory as an independent entity.

In 1960, French Cameroon achieved independence. In 1961, British Southern Cameroon decided to achieve independence by joining French Cameroon. Both countries became The Federal Republic of Cameroon.

In 1972, the Federal Republic of Cameroon united to form The United Republic of Cameroon. The country later became The Republic of Cameroon.
