It's the unforgivable story of the 200 000 harkis, the Arabs who fought alongside the French in the bitter Algerian war, from 1954 to 1962. Why did they make that choice ? Why were they slaughtered after Algeria's independance ? Why were they abandonned by the French government ? Some 50 to 60 000 were saved and transfered in France, often at pitifull conditions. This is for the first time, the story of this tragedy, told in the brilliant style of the authors of APOCALYPSE.
