European colonial militaries operating in northeastern and eastern Africa in the late nineteenth century, recruited men from disparate locations to fill their ranks. For many of them, joining the military resulted from some form of labor migration, often enough caused by violence that forced them into unfree labor relationships with their military employers. Once they became part of colonial armies, their work also typically entailed everyday forms of labor migration, even if they are not usually labeled as such either in contemporary sources or subsequent historiography. This paper explores British and German colonial military recruitment in Sudan and Egypt from the 1870s to the 1890s. It seeks to explain how a violent complex of unfree labor practices in the region contributed to the making of colonial armies through particular circuits of labor migration. This research draws on recent archival work in British and German archives, and is part of a much larger project that explores the connections and intersections between race, labor, and military recruitment in Europe and the United States from 1870-1918.
