(p.260) Conclusion
France, the United States, and the Algerian War

Irwin M. Wall

University of California Press

This concluding chapter sums of the key findings of this study on the impact of the Algerian War on France's relations with the United States. It suggests that it was the latter which had the most influence in French foreign policy in dealing with the Algerian War, being the guarantor of the French Empire during the Fourth Republic. The chapter highlights the importance of the war in making Charles de Gaulle a second-time savior of the French nation, and in elevating his place in history and his claim to political sainthood.

Keywords:   Algerian War, France, United States, foreign policy, Fourth Republic, Charles de Gaulle
