This review is from: The Battle of the Casbah: Terrorism and Counterterrorism in Algeria 1955-1957 (Paperback)
A fantastic book that describes fighting the enemy on their own terms; something rarely done these days. France's struggle to keep Algeria is one of the more interesting moments in its history and the author does not try to minimize any aspect. Also, the book is great in its form. Unlike other Algeria memoirs the book focuses more on the conflict itself rather than the author. The only negative aspect is that the book is rather short.
