Men-At-Arms #312: The Algerian War 1954-1962 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is hard to convey the public impact of France's war to maintain her colonial grip on Algeria; yet in the late 1950s this ugly conflict dominated Europe's media to almost the same extent as would Vietnam ten years later. It brought France to the very verge of military coup d'etat; it destroyed thousands of careers; bitterly divided the French military and political classes for a generation; and sent hundreds of thousands of European settler families into often ruinous exile. This title details the history, organisation, equipment and uniforms of the forces involved in the Algerian War (1954-1962).

Synopsis:

The technological might of France fought against a strong urban guerrilla movement during the Algerian war. Fighting for Algerian independence, the ALN used tactics ranging from assassination to the intimidation of natives to reach their goal, and they are described in this volume.
