I saw a review of The Battlefield: Algeria 1988-2002 by Hugh Roberts.

Lara Marlowe castigated it and the author was fighting his corner in the letters page in the Irish Times today which was pretty funny. It sounds very interesting tbh.

Of books I've read The Scramble For Africa by someone I forget, is a good account of the modern history of Africa in general if a bit hard to slog through at times. Though it's broad and might not have the detail on specifically Algeria you're looking for, but I haven't read a better book on the colonisation of Africa.
