The Algerian War of Independence (1954–62) was a period of guerrilla strikes, maquis fighting, terrorism against civilians on both sides, and riots between the French army and colonists in Algeria and the FLN and other pro-independence Algerians.
Merciless "café wars," resulting in nearly 5,000 deaths, were waged in France between the two rebel groups throughout the years of the War of Independence.
An important watershed in the War of Independence was the massacre of civilians by the FLN near the town of Philippeville in August 1955.

This second period lasted from the summer of 1778 to the middle of 1783, and it included both such operations as had already been in progress in America, or for the protection of commerce, and naval campaigns on a great scale carried out by the fleets of the maritime powers.
The destruction of his squadron on Lake Champlain in October covered the frontier of Canada, and supplied a basis for the march of General Burgoyne in 1777 which ended in the surrender at Saratoga.

 The Peace Encyclopedia: The War of Independence, 1948   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
And through one of the greatest miracles of modern times, and a testimony to the will to survive, tiny Israel was not only able to survive intact - she was also able to capture territory from which the Arab aggressors attacked; this is the penalty for waging war (and losing), and it always has been.
Another Antisemitic reprocussion of Israel's rebirth was that most of the Arab Muslim countries of the Middle East expelled EVERY single Jew living there and confiscated all their assets.
The next great miracle was the speed in which the primarily Ashkenazi Jews of Israel absorbed an equal number of their Arabic-speaking bretheren into society.

 Gameplanet - Reviews - Edge of Chaos - Independence War 2
This initial part of the game is a beginners tutorial for the player and covers the basics of how to travel around in all that vast emptiness without succumbing to space madness (which in reality comes from trying to learn all the control keys in space-sims).
I-War was also very mission oriented and left little room for open exploration of the systems (unless you fiddled a file or two with a hex editor).
Besides this the base is also the only place at which you can save the game and it must be noted that occasionally this can lead to some minor frustration when you have to repeat entire missions over and over until you succeed at the final part.

 American Revolution - Books on the War of Independence
Bobrick does a fine job of covering the ins and outs of this extraordinary war, giving readers enough background to understand the complexities of the issues that led to the Declaration of Independence by taking them through the war years leading to Washington's inauguration.
With wit, clarity, and dramatic effect, Samuel B. Griffith II vivifies the characters and incidents of the period on both sides of the Atlantic, drawing from personal diaries and letters, newspaper accounts, and detailed battle maps to create a unique alternative to standard histories of the period.
This enduring and exceptionally readable resource, first published in 1976 under the title In Defense of the Public Liberty: Britain, America, and the Struggle for Independence from 1760 to the Surrender at Yorktown in 1781, was honored with the Sons of Liberty Award for the best book on the American Revolution.
