Lieutenant in Algeria

By Jean-Jacques Servan-Schreiber

Knopf, 1957, 231 pp.

The author, a leading French journalist and editor of L'Express, served for six months as a combat officer in Algeria in 1956. His report, vividly told, is an indictment of French policy, though the evidence is rather more impressionistic and illustrative than documentary. (French original, "Lieutenant en Algérie," Paris: Julliard, 1957.)
