A propos de cet article

604 pages, 8 plates, 3 maps, cloth, dj, very good. From the publisher: "In A Savage War of Peace Alistair Horne presents the first full history of the Algerian war, from the All-Saints-Day rebellion of November 1, 1954, to the election of an independent Algerian government in July 1962. He masterfully weaves the complex strands of this story into a narrative of relentless fascination: the war itself in all its military and political aspects; the constant struggle within the F.L.N.; the profound revolution within Algerian Muslim society; the revolution in the French army in Algeria; the near civil war among the Europeans in Algeria, which culminated in the horrors of the O.A.S. and threatened to spill over into Metropolitan France." ; 604 pages.

A propos de ce titre

Synopsis :

Part Two Of Two Parts

The Algerian war was at once the last of the old-style "colonial wars" and the archetype of horribly savage new conflicts - undeclared wars between old and new worlds - waged successfully by urban terrorists and country-based guerrillas against crack modern armies. In eight years, more than a million Algerians died and an equal number of Europeans lost their homes. It was a tragedy rife with lessons Americans had to learn all over again in Vietnam. As the Third World continues to make its aspirations felt, and established political powers continue to maintain an order they must struggle to impose, the story of Algeria's fight for independence stands as model and prophecy. A SAVAGE WAR OF PEACE is the definitive history of that prophetic war.

"Alistair Horne is one of the best writers of history in the English speaking world. A Savage War of Peace shows him at the peak of his powers." (Financial Times)
