The 3rd of July will see the 50th anniversary of the end of the Algerian War of Independence (1954-62) and the creation of an independent Algerian republic (the Algerian Provisional Executive, under its leader Abderrahmane Farès, decided in 1962 that the national day of independence should be the 5th of July, it being the 132nd anniversary of France's invasion of the territory). Here are ten new pages related to the progression of the war.
