The intensity and scale of the colonization method explains why the Algerian struggle of 1954 to 1962 was once one of many longest and so much violent of the decolonization struggles.

An undeclared battle within the experience that there has been no formal starting of hostilities, the warfare produced large tensions that introduced down 4 governments, ended the Fourth Republic in 1958, and mired the French military in accusations of torture and mass human rights abuses.

Drawing upon formerly categorised archival assets in addition to new oral stories, this booklet underlines the clash of values among the Republican entrance and Algerian nationalism, explaining how this conflict produced styles of proposal and motion, akin to the institutionalization of torture and the elevating of pro-French Muslim militias, which tragically polarized offerings and framed all next phases of the conflict.
