The Algiers Motel incident


Write The First Customer Review

Responding to a telephoned report of sniping, the Detroit police invaded the Algiers Motel and interrogated ten black men and two white women. By the time the interrogators left, three men had been shot to death and the others, including the women, beaten. The late Pulitzer Prize winning novelist John Hersey described the event in this book, based on months of personal investigation and detailed evidence.
