Chapter Four The United States, Great Britain, and the Sakiet Crisis
France, the United States, and the Algerian War

This chapter focuses on the collaboration between the United States and Great Britain in dealing with the Sakiet crisis. It suggests that the French bombardment of the Sakiet Sidi Youssef on the Tunisian border in February 1958 marked the turning point of the Algerian War. The chapter explains that the attack resulted in Anglo-American intervention in a government crisis which rapidly evolved into a crisis of regime and the coming to power of Charles de Gaulle. It contends that the Anglo-American intervention significantly influenced France's policy in the Algerian War.
