3.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 1 Jan. 2009
This review is from: The Suez Crisis 1956 (Essential Histories) (Paperback)
If one is coming to this turbulent episode of the Suez canals colourful history for the first time then this is a reasonable starting point. I found the book to be very one sided and seemingly biased toward the Israeli operations. The photography contained therein is mediocre and doesn't supplement the very sparse chapters. I would have liked to have gotten the Egyptian perspective and some more post war analysis especially on the implications of French and British involvement.

This book managed to make a quite interesting conflict appear somewhat boring!!
