Entre insurrección y gobierno: la acción del Comité Internacional de la Cruz Roja en la guerra de Argelia (1954–1962)

La guerra de Argelia, en la que se enfrentaron durante siete años el gobierno francés y un movimiento armado insurreccional, se transformó en el arquetipo de las guerras de liberación nacional. Este conflicto llevó al paroxismo las nuevas condiciones de la lucha revolucionaria, caracterizada por los atentados terroristas, la guerra subterránea y la represión. (inglés)
