The Degeneration of the Regime

The Degeneration of the Regime

Chapter Three The Degeneration of the Regime
France, the United States, and the Algerian War

Irwin M. Wall

University of California Press

This chapter traces the events that led to the degeneration of the Fourth French Republic. It explains that as early as the end of 1956 France and the United States were already on bad terms and that this was aggravated by the Algerian War, particular the French use of torture. The same issue became an irritant in French relations with Great Britain and the disagreements spilled over into Tunisia and Morocco. These events marked the re-emergence of the British–American special relationship and the corresponding demotion of France from membership in the putative big three alongside the Anglo-Saxons.

Keywords:   Fourth French Republic, United States, France, Algerian War, torture, Great Britain, Tunisia, Morocco
