"We're about to go down to Fort Charlet now. Do you know it?"

Fort Charlet is one of many military forts built across the Sahara by the French and Italians throughout the last century and a half. Fort Charlet lies near Djanet, an oasis city in southeast Algeria. It was built on the orders of Captain Edouard Charlet in 1911.
