Psychological Warfare and the Algerian War

This material on gender, psychological warfare and the Algerian War was designed in collaboration with staff and students at City and Islington College following the IB unit 'Causes, Practices and Effects of Wars'.

The primary sources here are in many cases original archives or oral interviews so this source is also potentially of interest to undergraduates and postgraduates studying the Algerian War - especially if they don't read French!
