comment The first use of submarines, and the appearance of “modern” submarines
The submarines had a (strong) psychological effect in the Civil War... and in 1844 a French engineer built a closed air circuit submarine to help in the construction of underwater infrastructures in harbours.

comment Why does the monarchy of Belgium still exist after Leopold 2?
You could add that Congo was at that time a personal property of Leopold II and had nothing to do with Belgium.

comment In England, how many Jews died during the persecutions of the crusades during 1190-1200?
Maybe a look at the author's sources would help...

The "Great Jacquerie" in 1358 in France played a very important role in the Hundred Year's War.

comment What examples are of French and Arab cultural integration?
Yes, Camus was a pied-noir (blackfoot), as was Robert Merle for example, and French Algeria is omnipresent as a certain concrete sense of justice that make him very visible, but it's important to say there were 1 million Europeans in Algeria, as the introduction of mechanized and systematic agriculture since 1880, as well as generous subsides from the French Republic drew a lot of (mostly poor) migrants from France, Italy, Malta and Spain (among others) to Algeria.
