The battle of the Casbah : terrorism and counter-terrorism in Algeria, 1955-1957 by Paul Aussaresses( Book )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The revelations about brutal torture and summary executions during the battle of Algiers drew the anger of public opinion in France. Many in the government, including Francois Mitterrand the future president of France, knew and approved of the actions in Alegia. No other French army officer had ever spoken out in such detail until this book. General Aussaresses argues that torture "works" and may be necessary in extreme situations. It details the methods used and the results obtained by the paratrooper commando units led by the author. Without a doubt the Algerian guerrillas, known as the FLN, were capable of appalling cruelty. On the other hand, the French occupation of Algeria was not popular, and could not be maintained without resorting to brutal and repressive means. In 1962, De Gaulle decided to withdraw French troops from Algeria. By that time 30,000 French and 500,000 Algerians had been killed. This book is particularly relevant to the current debate on terrorism and it is this discussion which constitutes the main part of the book

Une enquête qui dénonce la façon dont la France et son armée ont, dès les années 1960 et en véritables experts, exporté en Amérique latine et aux Etats-Unis les méthodes de lutte anti-subversives testées lors de la guerre d'Algérie. Après plus d'une année d'investigations en Argentine, au Chili, au Brésil, aux Etats-Unis et en France, Marie-Monique Robin a recueilli, parfois avec une caméra cachée, des témoignages exclusifs des principaux protagonistes : le général Aussaresses, Reynaldo Bignone, chef de la junte militaire en Argentine de 1982 à 1984, Albano Harguindeguy, ministre de l'Intérieur du général Videla en Argentine, Manuel Contreras, chef de la police secrète de Pinochet, et les généraux John Johns et Carl Bernard, des anciens élèves du général Aussaresses
