"The title of this set is more than a little vague, since it could be argued that the people of the Rif region in northern Morocco were in almost constant rebellion. They were a fiercely independent people who no more welcomed domination from a sultan in far-off Fez than they did from Spanish colonial troops. A strong sultan could keep the Rif under some sort of nominal control, but a weak one meant the Rif largely ruled themselves, which was often the case. However the weapons carried in this set allow us to be much more precise, and to date the set to after the First World War, which means we are talking about the major Rif War from 1920 to 1927, when the Spanish attempted to take control of the region and the wider protectorate they had been formally granted in 1912…"
