Kodok, or Kothok, formerly known as Fashoda, is a town in the Western Nile state of South Sudan. Famously, the British and the French almost went to war here in 1898 in what is known as the Fashoda Incident. The British attempted to create a solid block of influence from southern Africa to Egypt on the east side of the African continent. Meanwhile, the French were expanding eastward from West Africa. Their paths intersected here, and a military standoff put them on the brink of war. Though no war occurred, the British got the favorable advantage.
