In 1912 Huré transferred to the general staff in eastern Morocco and earned the Colonial Medal. Huré was recalled to France at the start of the First World War and was shot in the chest whilst serving with the 1st Moroccan Infantry Division, being mentioned in dispatches for continuing with his duties despite his wound. He was posted back to Morocco in 1916 to become military commander of the Fes region. In January 1919 he took over command of French operations against the uprising led by in the Tafilalt after General Joseph-François Poeymirau was wounded. Huré suppressed the uprising within a month. In April 1919 he led a column to the relief of a French garrison at Aïn Médiouna which had put up a defence against a Moroccan force twenty times their number for four days during another uprising against French rule. Huré then launched further operations that stabilised the military situation in the area within the month. In July he was appointed commander of French troops in Southern Morocco. Huré eventually reached the rank of général de division and became supreme commander of all French troops in Morocco. Under his supervision the country was finally pacified in 1934. He returned to France in 1935 to serve on the Supreme Council of War and was later made inspector general of engineers. He wrote two books on military history, including one on the pacification of Morocco that was published after his death. Huré was rewarded for his work by appointment as Grand Cross of the Legion of Honour and as Commander of the Order of Ouissam Alaouite. (en)
