  • Suez
Product Description:

On July 26, 1956, the British Empire received a blow from which it would never recover. On this day, Egypt's President Gamal Abdul Nasser nationalized the Suez Canal Company, one of the gems of Britain's imperial portfolio. It was to be a fateful day for Britain as a world power. Britain, France and Israel subsequently colluded in attacking Egypt, ostensibly -- in the case of Britain and France -- to protect the Suez Canal but in reality in an attempt to depose Nasser. The U.S. opposition to this scheme forced an ignominious withdrawal, leaving Nasser triumphant and marking a decisive end to Britain's imperial era.

In this, the seminal work on the Suez Crisis, Keith Kyle draws on a wealth of documentary evidence to tell this fascinating political, military and diplomatic story. Including new introductory material, this revised edition of a classic work will be essential reading for anyone interested in the history of the twentieth century, military history and the end of empire.

Product Description:
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.

Product Description:

In the 1950s, after the creation of the State of Israel, there was still tension between Israel and Egypt.

The British involvement in the military action to secure the Suez Canal from President Nasser of Egypt in the autumn of 1956 proved to be one of the greatest political mistakes of the century.

It led to repercussions which affected Britain’s standing as a major player in world politics. In the light of many newly released government documents, Robert Jackson wrote his 1996 book which appraised both the military campaign itself and the international backlash that it caused.

Jackson’s book asks pertinent questions which hold up sixty years after the conflict.

Why was this operation launched against the wishes of almost every senior British commander?

Why did premier Anthony Eden run such a personal crusade against Nasser?

Why was the French military so much more prepared and therefore effective, than the British?

Would Russia have risked crushing the Hungarian uprising if Suez had not been centre-stage in world affairs?

In a brief but fascinating discussion, Jackson lists the ships and aircraft which were used in the conflict, and is not shy at pointing out mistakes and errors of judgement. In a climate where politicians are still quick to rush to war, this story is essential reading.

Robert Jackson (b. 1941) is a prolific author of military and aviation history. As an active serviceman in the Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve he flew a wide range of aircraft, ranging from jets to gliders.

  • Eisenhower 1956 Book
Product Description:
A gripping tale of international intrigue, betrayal, and personal drama during the darkest days of the Cold War, Eisenhower 1956 is the first major book to examine the event in thirty years.

Debunking most historians’ opinion that the Suez crisis was merely a minor incident linked to the end of colonial rule in Egypt, Eisenhower 1956—drawing on hundreds of newly declassified documents—makes clear that it was the most dangerous crisis of Eisenhower’s presidency. Eisenhower used economic threats to force his British, French, and Israeli allies to withdraw from Egypt and put U.S. military forces on alert to deter Soviet intervention in the Middle East. Current U.S. policy in the region dates to the Suez crisis, when we replaced Great Britain as the guarantor of stability.

Acclaimed Eisenhower expert David Nichols masterfully weaves great personal drama—Eisenhower’s two life-threatening illnesses—with simultaneous world crises (America’s closest allies invade Egypt while the Soviets invade Hungary) and the final days of the 1956 presidential election campaign into a white-knuckle read.

Product Description:

A lively, revelatory popular history that tells the story of both the Suez Crisis and the Hungarian Revolution of 1956—a tale of conspiracy and revolutions, spies and terrorists, kidnappings and assassination plots, the fall of the British Empire and the rise of American hegemony under the heroic leadership of President Dwight D. Eisenhower—which shaped the Middle East and Europe we know today.

The year 1956 was a turning point in history. Over sixteen extraordinary days in October and November of that year, the twin crises involving Suez and Hungary pushed the world to the brink of a nuclear conflict and what many at the time were calling World War III. Blood and Sand delivers this story in an hour-by-hour account through a fascinating international cast of characters: Anthony Eden, the British prime minister, caught in a trap of his own making; Gamal Abdel Nasser, the bold young populist leader of Egypt; David Ben-Gurion, the aging Zionist hero of Israel; Guy Mollet, the bellicose French prime minister; and Dwight D. Eisenhower, the American president, torn between an old world order and a new one in the very same week that his own fate as president was to be decided by the American people.

This is a revelatory history of these dramatic events and people, for the first time setting both crises in the context of the global Cold War, the Arab-Israeli conflict, and the treacherous power politics of imperialism and oil. Blood and Sand resonates strikingly with the problems of oil control, religious fundamentalism, and international unity that face the world today, and is essential reading for anyone concerned with the state of the modern Middle East and Europe.

Blood and Sand includes 25-30 black-and-white photographs.

Product Description:
In October 1956, Britain, France and Israel launched an attack on Egypt. For each of the contenders there was much more at stake than the future of the Canal. None of the combatants in the Suez campaign emerged in glory which may be why, in recent years, it has been largely relegated to academic studies. But the events surrounding the invasion, while combining the high drama with elements of political farce that make for a compelling story, had a greater impact on world affairs than many more famous conflicts.

Product Description:
Making extensive use of official material which has recently been released and which casts particular illumination on the rupture which the Suez crisis caused in Anglo-American relations, the author examines the long-term and short-term causes, the principal events from nationalization until the aborting of the military operation in November 1956, and the consequences of the crisis on the standing of Britain with the rest of the world. The full extent of the collusion that took place among the British, the French and the Israelis before the famous ultimatum was sent to Egypt is considered, as is the role in the crisis of Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden.
