Abstract

This article analyzes the influence of the Algerian War of Independence (1954–
1962) and that of the newly independent Algeria in three cases associated with the
political violence of the Spanish Transition. Firstly, it shows how the coup d’état of
February 23, 1981 (23-F) was inspired by a similar coup d’etat that took place in Algeria in 1958. Secondly, it examines the relevance of Algeria’s support for Saharawi and Canarian nationalism. Thirdly, it studies how the Algerian War of Independence was a benchmark for ETA and also for members of the commandos who fought against it. The objective of this work is to show the double significance of Algeria both as a reference point and as a political actor.
