A. Plan of the Investigation
The investigation that i am doing assesses the torture methods applied by the French to the
Algerian prisoners during the Algerian War. In order to analyze the torture methods, used by the French
during the Algerian war, the investigation will require first hand interpretations of torture methods used
by the French on Algerian prisoners; from the time period the prisoners entered prison, until they either
died from torture wounds or were murdered. Memoirs and History journals are mostly used to analyze
the torture methods of the French. Two of the sources used in the essay,
a written memoir
by Henri Alleg,
The Battle of the Casbah
written by General Paul Aussaresses will then be evaluated
for their origins,purposes, values, and limitations.
