How did the French system of colonial rule differ from that of Great Britain?

A: The French system of colonial rule differed from that of Great Britain in several ways. In Great Britain, the colonial rule was indirect, keeping the old African elite in power and sowing the seeds for class and tribal tensions. In contrast, the French system of colonial rule was direct, aiming to assimilate Africans into French culture rather than preserve local traditions.
