Clark–Darlan Agreement (1942)

CLARKDARLAN AGREEMENT (1942)

armistice agreement ending vichy french resistance to allied invasion of french north africa.

During World War II, after the Allies invaded North Africa in November 1942, the Vichy French commander in chief, Admiral Jean François Darlan, signed this agreement on 22 November with General Mark Clark of the United States in Algiers, capital of Algeria, then under French control. Darlan ordered an end to French resistance, was made high commissioner of French North Africa, and severed ties with Vichy France. Because of Darlan's reputation as a Fascist, the deal aroused intense criticism.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
