For more than fifteen years, from 1955 to 1971, France waged a secret war in Cameroon. A colonial war, then neo-colonial, which claimed tens of thousands of victims, perhaps many more. A war that literally disappeared from official history, in France, where it is still taught that the decolonization of French-speaking Africa was exemplary and peaceful, in Cameroon, where many remember it so well that it left such a deep impression on society, but where, even today, few dare to speak about it. This book, rigorously documented, retraces for the first time the history of the forgotten war that opposed the French authorities to the supporters of the Union of the Populations of Cameroon (UPC), the pro-independence party of Ruben Um Nyobè, Félix Moumié and Ernest Ouandié, assassinated respectively in 1958, 1960 and 1971.
