Yves-François-Marie-Aimé Urvoy (1900–1944) was a French army officer and historian whose work has focused on French colonial holdings in Africa.

Background[edit]

Urvoy was born to a family of lower-middle class French-Algerian settlers on 20 January 1900 in Orléansville, Algeria.[1] Relocating to metropolitan France in 1906, the family settled in Paimpol. Urvoy attended the Lycee General David D'angers, and then École régionale des beaux-arts d'Angers, before undertaking a second art degree at the Central Academy and the St Louis school.[1] Urvoy trained at the Manufacture nationale de Sèvres from 1918 to 1920 but upon completion of his training, decided to instead pursue a career in the military.
