Abstract

Through interviews with military and intelligence officials, extant footage, and film clips, this documentary uncovers the French military's decisive role in the development of counter-insurgency techniques during the Cold War. After fighting guerillas in Indochina and Algeria, the French military exported their lessons to Latin America's Dirty Wars and America's Vietnam War that led to thousands of deaths and political repression.
