Located behind the buildings of the Chadian army, this cemetery brings together the dead of the Battle of Doroté, which took place on 8 and 9 November 1910. It pitted the French forces to the last forces of Sultan Doudmourah, the nickname of Mohamed Youssouf, which means the "lion de Moura" (small royal city about kilometres from Abéché, on Adré Road), allied to the Sultan of Des. The struggle made many victims on both sides, including the Sultan of Massalit, Tadj el Din, and devoted the victory of the French. Sultan Doudmourah will visit one year later on October 14, 1911.
In order to peacefully visit this cemetery, whose border with the military camp is blurred, it is strongly advisable to have you accompanied by a child in the country.
