Ted Morgan was in Algeria at the time, and records the war’s unprecedented tactics in his poignant memoir, My Battle of Algiers.
Morgan was privy to much of this information at the time, and has since supplemented his firsthand knowledge with careful historical investigation.

 Powell's Books - My Battle of Algiers: A Memoir by Ted Morgan
Morgan recalls this fierce history with an intensity that belies that it happened a half century ago.
One of Morgan's first duties at the Army paper was to convince the people of the casbah that a general strike called for in February 1957 by the FLN would be bad for them.
But Morgan points out that the tortured FLN turncoat seen in the film's opening scenes giving away the location of a rebel fighter is a distortion: 'In reality, it was Yacef who led the paras to his colleague.' This is only one of the insider gems that the book offers.

 Morgan, Ted: Churchill - Young Man in a Hurry 1874-1915 - The Churchill Centre
Chronicling all this and much, much more, Ted Morgan provides a well-rounded and candid account of the first 41 years of the life - public and private - of one of the most complex, colorful and charismatic personalities of this or any other century.
Morgan answered my (and John David's) hope that his own sequel was underway with the thought that he was perhaps more willing than his publisher - so YOUNG MAN IN A HURRY may not, much to our regret, be the first of a series.
In sum, Morgan's is by far the better book: more skillfully written (if too closely paralleling the earlier work on occasion, even down to the same quotes, which are perhaps unavoidable), more exciting, a far "easier read," and accompanied by better illustrations, not a few of them new.

 AEI - Short Publications
Now comes Ted Morgan (the adopted American name of Sanche de Gramont), who served as a lieutenant in the French army in the penultimate days of that war, to remind us what it was all about.
Morgan saw the war firsthand and in all its maddening ambiguity: It was often difficult to separate Algerians genuinely sympathetic to the rebels' Front de Liberation National from those merely forced to contribute taxes or information to the rebels for fear of their own lives.
Morgan tells us he was inspired to write this book by the current U.S. involvement in Iraq, which--though he admits differences in context and even in intent--must likewise end in an inglorious withdrawal.

Morgan was educated in the U.S., and at the age of 23 he was yanked from his job as a journalist at a small American newspaper and conscripted into the French army.
As the rebels shifted their focus from the country to the cities, Morgan was assigned to write for an official newspaper, which gave him a bird's-eye view of the day-to-day struggle in Algiers.
Although Morgan provides a concise overview of precolonial and colonial Algerian history, this is not a comprehensive account of the war.

 BBC - Comedy Guide - Father Ted
Ted is a complex character, well-meaning on the surface but vain and greedy underneath, with a lust for fame and glory never far away.
But Ted is an amateur in the ways of curse words compared to the heinous, constantly-smashed Jack, a grizzled, nasty termagant whose brain has been addled by booze.
Though these eight episodes - which, because of Morgan's death, had to be the last - were overshadowed by his demise, they proved to be a fitting tribute, with the madness as bizarre as ever and the comedy equally fine.

 TIME.com: Countless Blessings -- Mar. 20, 1978 -- Page 1
Big changes: De Gramont, says Morgan, was the strict, rather European father, for instance, and something of a male chauvinist; Morgan, says Morgan, is a permissive American father of two, and an earnest believer in feminism.
De Gramont kissed the slender hands of titled ladies, the rascal; Morgan, 45, helps his wife Nancy with the dishes and is not likely to be invited to dinners where footmen stand behind each place.
Ted Morgan is a man loopy with love for his new country, and the result is a book that is both refreshing and breathless.
