Product description


Easily the best account of the 1954-1962 war of Algerian independence available in English. (Financial Times, Books of the Year)

Excellent (The Economist)

Masterly (History Today)

Original (Le Monde Diplomatique)

Evans, a master scholar, has produced a comprehensive narrative. (Foreign Affairs)

Strikingly illustrated and using novel archival sources ... scintillating (Literary Review)

For the benefit of a new generation of anglophone readers, this book is a welcome statement of the progress that has been made. (Michael Brett, Times Literary Supplement)

Evans' great achievement is to 'Algerianise' the struggle. (History Today)
