President Eisenhower receives moderately high marks. Material from the United Nations archives is especially valuable. The portrait of Anthony Eden is devastating, the criticism of France and Israel severe, and the sympathy for Nasser and Egypt considerable. President Eisenhower receives moderately high marks. Perhaps the best book yet written on the subject.

The Eisenhower revival meets the 25th anniversary of the Suez fiasco (October 1956) - in a crackling (only occasionally discomfitting) combination of popular and diplomatic history with a knockout cast.

Drawing on numerous, previously unexplored sources, this account of the Suez Canal crisis draws vivid portraits of the leaders involved--Eisenhower, Eden, Ben-Gurion, Mollet, Khrushchev, and Nasser--and analyzes its background and causes

very good book and excellent detail. I purchased more books by this author and enjoyed them all. I heard some reviews that he is partial to the Arabs. I did not get that feeling from reading his books. I think he approaches his topics in a very balanced way.

The more history I read the more distrustful and skeptical I become of governments, their leaders, the media and opinion makers. Donald Neff's wonderfully written "Warriors at Suez" (1972) is one of those histories that totally shatters the illusions of recent history. I remember the 1956 Suez Canal Crisis and how it was reported at the time. Nasser allegedly was a fanatic anti-israeli arab who illegally seized the Suez canal from a French/English company with the intent of controlling shipping and establishing a pan-Arab empire. The French and British sent troops in to retake the canal and Israel joined the fray to defend itself. The enterprise fell apart because the Russians threatened to become involved on the side of Nasser and start a nuclear war. Or so it was reported at the time. Neff's book goes inside the making of the crisis and totally disabuses the conventional reporting of this event in history. According to Neff, Nasser wanted to free Egypt of colonial control and this motivated his peaceful seizure and nationalizing of the canal. The British, particularly PM Anthony Eden,and France's Mollet took extreme umbrage of the seizure and plotted to take the canal back militarily. Israel saw this as an opportunity to equip its military and expand it lands so it plotted with the French to join the invasion. Eisenhower had the common sense to oppose the venture because Nasser had done nothing illegal, he was not belligerent, and the venture would force him into the arms of the Russians and hurt the Allies in the eyes of the Mideast nations. The most disconcerting part of this fiasco was the deceitfulness of Eden, France's Mollet and Israel's Ben Gurion. Unfortunately, many innocent Egyptians and Palestinians lost their lives during the short-lived invasion before world opinion forced an end to the conflict. The Israelis were the last to give up their ill-gotten gains under threat of a world boycott. They were particularly brutal during the invasion, unnecessarily massacring captured Egyptians and Palestinian civilians. This is a history worth reading for self edification. It will turn you into a skeptic and that's what the world needs more of.

I love to read well researched, well written and objective history. This is not it. First and foremost, Mr. Neff's book has a demonstrably anti-semitic slant. Somehow, a retaliatory raid by Israeli Paratroopers targeting the Egyptian Army in Gaza is the catalyst for all the terrible things to happen in the Middle East in the years to follow. Almost all the descriptions of Israeli leaders and soldiers are ethnic stereotypes and one dimensional portrayals designed to make them seem slightly less human than the Egyptian, French, British and American individuals described in the book. This kind of not so subtle hate is not new. It surely has no place in a book that purports to be a work of serious history. This book is a waste of time. Frankly, I am sorry I finished it. The Suez Crisis was a critical event in world history. Fortunately, there are several other books that cover it reasonably well, in addition to a host of newspaper columns and magazine articles.

An indept history and analysis into the imperialistic attack on Egypt by Israel, Britain and France. A must have for people interested in the incident or modern Egyptian history.
