Operation TORCH

1942, Algeria, a French territory, is governed with fascist laws. Facing this, José Aboulker and Colette Pilafort will change the course of history. For one day, within a clever plan, they will block the collaborationist army, and allow the landing of the American allied forces. The “Torch” operation was supposed to be finished in two hours, but storms and bad weather will considerably delay the arrival of the liberators.
