Overview... a paratroop commander for the French military in Algiers. Mathieu and the French are fighting the Algerians to prevent their independence from France. His chief task is gathering intelligence. Then he’ll turn to bombs. He sees it as an inevitable stage in revolutionary war – from terrorism to insurrection, as guerrilla warfare turns into to real war.
Personality... ruthless and starved for victory. He believes that false humanitarianism only leads to impotence. He’s willing to interrogate anyone and everyone until he gets all the information he needs on the FLN (Algeria’s National Liberation Front). Mathieu is frustrated by the laws and regulations that stifle his operation, as if it’s something other than a full out war.
