Overview

Freedom. How far would you go to win yours?

A nation stolen; the people enslaved. After two long wars, the conqueror is weak. The subjugated must rise up and seize the moment, no matter the cost. It’s now or never.

The empire is slipping away. Their forefathers fought and died for it. If defeated, their sacrifices will have meant nothing and the once great nation will become a footnote to history. All is at risk.

Algeria 1954. French paratroopers once again lead the fight. But this is no ordinary enemy. The rebels attack from the shadows but live in plain sight in the Casbah, among the people. This is urban warfare at its worst. Everyone is suspect. Nobody is safe.

Will France’s elite soldiers be up for the task? How far will they go to find the rebel leaders and squash the rebellion?

Unable to wage a conventional war, the Algerians take the fight to the streets of Paris using their secret weapon — three beautiful sirens. They strike where it will hurt the most...

Based on true events, Café Wars is historical fiction at its best. A tale of millions of lives hanging in the balance, along with the soul of a nation.
