A detailed historical narrative about life and death in Algeria,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Monks of Tibhirine: Faith, Love and Terror in Algeria (Paperback)
This book is remarkably well researched. I bought it as part of the research for an essay on Algeria, and it was of limited use to that essay, but it was still very interesting and is well worth reading.
The story is about a groups of monks (I think 7 people in all) - it talks about their personal history, their decisions to join the brotherhood, the conflict in Algeria and the murder of the monks.
Excuse such a limited review, it's been a while now sinse I read the book.
