Inhaltsangabe

The Algerian War lasted from 1954 to 1962. It caused the fall of six French governments, led to the collapse of the Fourth Republic, and came close to provoking a civil war on French soil. More than a million Muslim Algerians died in the conflict, and as many European settlers were driven into exile. Above all, the war was marked by an unholy marriage of revolutionary terror and state torture.

At the time, this brutal, intractable conflict seemed like a French affair. But from the perspective of half a century, it looks less like the last colonial war than the first postmodern one: a full-dress rehearsal for the amorphous struggle that convulsed the Balkans in the 1990s and that now ravages the Middle East, struggles in which religion, nationalism, imperialism, and terrorism assume unparalleled degrees of intensity.

Kritikerstimmen

"[This] universally acclaimed history...should have been mandatory reading for the civilian and military leaders who opted to invade Iraq." (Washington Times)

    Geschichte
    "Narrator and French "

    The book is a sound work and well structured. One may deplore the author's tendency to make comparisons to events which took place when he wrote or last reviewed the book which are now somewhat dated. What is entirely inacceptable is the choice of the narrator. For obvious reasons the book is full of French terms and quotations. The narrator has not the slightest knowledge of French nor taken care to consult a dictionary showing pronunciation. Few terms are correctly pronounced and some are hardly recognisable. Deplorable. If you have an ear for French and don't wish to suffer, better buy the printed book or the Kindle version.
