Who fought the 1950s Algerian war? While most accounts assume that “the French” and “the Algerians” went to war with each other in 1954, evidence suggests that who belonged to each group was a source of heated controversy. This project traces the formation of “French” and “Algerian” identities during French rule in Algeria (1830-1962). Using archival sources, it argues that conflicts among social movements and central state authorities, more so than cultural background or economic position, account best for the construction of these identities. It concludes that the deep separation between “the French” and “the Algerians” was, thus, a product of the 1950s war.
