In July 1956 Egyptian President Gamal Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal, causing immediate concern to Britain and France. They already opposed Nasser and were worried at the threat to maritime traffic in the Canal. This book traces the course of subsequent events. Together with Israel, Britain and France hatched a plot to occupy the Canal Zone and overthrow Nasser. Israel attacked Sinai, and Britain and France launched offensives throughout Egypt, but strategic failures overshasdowed tactical success. Finally, Britain, France and Israel bowed to international pressure and withdrew, leaving the Suez Canal, and Egypt, firmly in the hands of President Nasser.Contents: Introduction · Chronology · Background to war: The Suez Crisis and its military implications · Warring sides: Diversity in capabilities, doctrine, and leadership · Outbreak: Britain, France and Israel contemplate forceful resolution · The fighting: Crisis becomes war · Portrait of a soldier: Israeli commandos · How the war ended: Britain and France abandon revise · Portrait of a civilian: Destruction in Egypt and Gaza · Conclusion and consequences: A transitional conflict · Further reading · Index Paperback; March 2003; 96 pages.
