I greatly enjoyed reading this trilogy. Based on real people and real situations, these books bring to life the struggles and sorrows, joys and successes of the people involved in the Algerian battles for independence. The author is an excellent writer, and the books grab one's attention and hold it all the way through. Not every situation turns out the way one would hope; life is not like that; and these books are based on what actualities did occur during these years. Fortunately, the author was able to draw everything to a very positive conclusion for the main characters, and I am sure the reader will be very pleased with this series.
