November 1st, 1954 - Algeria war


On November 1st, 1954 the Algerian Liberation Front (FLN) begins an armed struggle against the French troops stationed in the country, to achieve Algeria’s independence from France. France had always rejected an Algerian independence after the Second World War, because a strong French minority lived in the North African country. As the battle drags on the war, despite victories on the French side, but due to the guerrilla tactics of the FLN, can’t be won. Tensions between mainland France and its settlers in Algeria grow. There is unrest and riots in Algiers as it became clear that the majority of the French population is committed to the end of the war and for an independence of Algeria. The settlers and parts of the French military threaten a coup attempt, and are only calmed when General de Gaulle re-enters politics. He solves the state crisis. In 1962, Algeria is granted independence.
