Algeria is the largest country on the African continent.
- in the north it borders on the Mediterranean Sea
- in the west to Mauritania and Morocco
- in the south of Mali and Niger
- in the east to Libya and Tunisia.
It was not until the 16th century that Algeria could be seen as a national territory with a unified history. For many years Algeria was a feared maritime superstate. The pirate attacks on the Spanish and Italian coasts worried all Christian Mediterranean countries.
The French waged a campaign of conquest against Algeria, which they brought under their control in 1830.
Until 1924, French postage stamps were used in Algeria.
Airmail stamps, also called airmail stamps, belong to the group of postage stamps. These postage stamps had been used for franking airmail items since 1917. However, they could also be used for normal mail.
