North Africa: France's Last Chance

Alan, Ray
September 1954
New Republic;9/20/54, Vol. 131 Issue 12, p9
This article discusses the French policy in North Africa. The author says that, if people go to the Tunis, Tunisia bus station today they will not see the man in the pith helmet but they will find the porters. They will hear them singing and laughing and talking politics. No fair-minded person will fail to sympathize with the settlers' dilemma. Their achievements, and those of successive French administrations, are there for all to see, and are particularly impressive if set against the background of Tunisia's turbulent history. Calamity came again in the century with Nazi depredations, the savage destructiveness of the 1943 liberation campaign and the five-year drought which followed it.
