France's Undeclared War

Martin Evans

Making of the Modern World

  • Traces the origins of the Algerian war from the initial French invasion in 1830
  • Looks at the war both on the ground in Algeria and how developments in France affected the course of the war
  • Re-examines the war to argue that it was the Socialist led Republican front of 1956-7 which represents the defining moment in the war
  • Draws upon both previously classified archival sources as well as new oral testimony to highlight the clash of values between the Republican Front in France and Algerian nationalism
