Algerian War

Fighting was "virtually finished"

Thursday Jun 29, 1961

On 29 June 1961, De Gaulle announced on TV that fighting was "virtually finished" and afterwards there was no major fighting between the French Army and the FLN; during the summer of 1961 the OAS and the FLN engaged in a civil war, in which the greater number of the Muslims soon made a difference.
