Seller ID   16838

231 pp, 8vo (8 5/8" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w maps. "Even today there is widespread misunderstanding of the nature of the long-drawn-out and bitter struggle between the French and the Algerian nationalists. Understandable horror and dism ay at the acts of terrorism and the memory of times such as that when Paris prepared herself for an invasion by French paratroops have made detached judgement difficult. This book provides a lucid and straightforward account of the progres s o f t h e insurrection, while at the same time making clear the reasons, political as well as military, why events followed the pattern they did. (Major O'Ballance is well qualified to)....assess authoritatively the use made by the ALN - the A rm y o f N at io na l Liberation - of 'classic' guerilla strategy and techniques and the effectiveness (which was greater than is often supposed) of such French counter-measures as the Challe Plan. The often bewildering series of events which led to d e G au ll e's re tur n to power, and the background to the European insurrection of 1960 and the Generals' revolt of 1961 are set in perspective. A distinguishing feature of the Algerian revolutionary campaign is that its success depended more th an m ost on pol itic al a dr oitness and a capacity to mobilize world opinion."
