The French war to keep Algeria coincided with eight years of Cold War history during which much of the world was transformed. Began on All Saints Day, November 1, 1954, the war ended in March 1962. During this period Britain and France invaded Egypt, while the Soviets invaded Hungary, and the United States went to the brink of nuclear war with China.
