The National Liberation Army or ALN (Arabic: ? French: Armée de libération nationale) was the armed wing of the nationalist National Liberation Front of Algeria during the Algerian War. After the independence of Algeria from France in 1962, the ALN was converted into the regular Algerian People's National Armed Forces, but its leadership also came to play a prominent role in the politics of Algeria, as in the 1965 coup d'état by Colonel Houari Boumédiène.
