    What if, instead of completely withdrawing from Algeria, France would have withdrawn to the coastal cities of Algeria (specifically the ones with a large pied-noir population)? Could France have held out indefinitely there? Or would staying there have eventually become too costly for France...

    How much of a factor was demographics in France's exit from Algeria?

    How much of a factor was demographics in France's exit from Algeria in 1962?

    Why didn't France annex Tunisia like it did with (northern) Algeria?

    Why didn't France annex Tunisia like it did with (northern) Algeria? Basically, I could understand France not annexing Morocco (for one, Morocco had a long history of independence), but why didn't France annex Tunisia?
