Alf Heggoy, Insurgency and Counter Insurgency in Algeria (Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 1972). Ideologically charged sources and proximity to events make lasting analysis difficult, but the author is quite adroit at showing how reform came too late, was too little and halfhearted and was met with too much resistance from the colons to be effective. Still, “By the end of 1957 and certainly by the middle of 1958, the nationalists had all but lost the military conflict within Algeria.” Still, sanctuaries in Morocco and Tunisia saved the day for the revolutionaries as the FLN broke the will of the French in the metropole. General Massu’s 10th Paratroop Division’s won the Battle of Algiers militarily, but turned Algerians against France in the process, and the French against the Algerian war. Still, as late as June, 190, 171,000 Algerians were still fighting alongside the French.

From the dust cover--

This is a thorough and well-balanced study of the tactics and organization of the Algerian insurgents and the French counterinsurgent forces during the first four years of that struggle. Based on a variety of sources, including little-known unpublished documents and interviews with former French and Algerian soldiers, the book offers valuable material presented for the first time in English....
