During the fourteenth century, Tanzania's location on the East African coast made it easily accessible to Arab traders and slave traders. While French interest in Tanzania peaked towards the mid-eighteenth century due to the economic possibilities of the region, German missionaries from the German Church Missionary Society preceded French interaction. German methods of colonial administration were met with fierce local resistance, but control was briefly re-established until the outbreak of World War 1. After Germany's defeat, Britain administered the region which it renamed as the 'Tanganyika' region.Following World War 2, the Tanganyika region was placed under UN trusteeship. Various independent movements emerged around this time, including the Tanganyika Africa National Union, headed by Julius Nyerere.
