Question and answer
What's one reason why the independence movements in Africa tended to be more violent than other places? African countries tended to seek independence earlier than other countries around the
world. The colonies in Africa each had very large white settler populations who resisted all attempts at independence. The colonies in Africa had been the sight of most of the most deadly battles of the Second World War. Africa had undergone centuries of brutal exploitation and mass slavery that broke down institutions of civil society.

Why might France have been more motivated to resist independence movements in Algeria than it had in French Indo-China? Algeria had a large settler community made up of French-speaking Europeans. Algeria had been a part of France since the end of World War II. The Vietnamese resistance was stronger and far more organized. The Vietnamese independence movement appealed to Britain for help.
Weegy: 1) France had more invested in Algeria than in Morocco, Tunisia, or Vietnam. 2) Algeria is loads closer to France than Vietnam is, and the environment is arid or semi-arid rather than jungle, [ so it is easier to supply and conduct a counter-insurgency. ] (More)
