Algeria Date:1954 Duration:1 min 40 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Aerial overview of several French military outposts in Algeria. French Legionnaires constructing a new fort on top of a hill. They set barbed wire at periphery; crack rocks with sledge hammer; pass building stones in a brigade, passing them along a line of soldiers. They mix mortar with shovels and pass it to masons using it to set stones. A field kitchen feeds the troops. Touch of humor noir: they name the mess tent: "Restaurant Mort delice." Views from outpost. French Legionnaires raise the tricolor over finished outpost. A large white cross held on ground with stones, marks helicopter landing site.
