My Battle of Algiers book. Those familiar with the "Battle of Algiers" film of the late 1960s will be interested in this book, and also will learn (if, like me, you didn't know already) that the film covers only a very small portion of the actual Algiers and Algerian conflict. The book is relevant today in many ways, even though Algeria is a much different place. Still, plenty of lessons to apply to the current battle against Very well-written and interesting tale of a complex and often-misunderstood time and place.
Director: Gillo Pontecorvo. Starring: Ali La Pointe, Colonel Mathieu, El-hadi Jaffar and others. One of the most influential political films in history, The Battle of Algiers, by Gillo Pontecorvo, vividly re-creates a key year in the tumultuous Algerian struggle for independence from the occupying French in the 1950s. As violence escalates on both sides, children shoot soldiers at point-blank range, women plant bombs in cafés, and French soldiers resort to torture to break the will of the insurgents.
The book, written by Yacef while a prisoner of the French, was FLN morale-boosting propaganda for militants. After independence, Yacef was released and became part of the new government.
