Description
On October 29, 1956, Israel, Britain, and France invaded Egypt in reaction to Gamal Abdel Nasser's nationalization of the formerly British-controlled Suez Canal. Days later, Soviet troops and tanks crushed Hungary's bid for secession from the Iron Curtain, and threatened to intervene in Egypt as well. David Nichols's day-by-day, hour-by-hour account explains how President Eisenhower's swift response resolved the Suez Crisis and resulted in a lasting shift in Middle East policy.

"Eisenhower 1956 is a wonderfully suspenseful account of perhaps the most dangerous crisis of the Cold War, and demonstrates brilliantly how well Eisenhower handled it—despite the fact that he was recovering from a heart attack—employing deft diplomacy, a matchless sense of how to use America's power, steely firmness even towards old friends and allies, and a strong sense of what was right, in the pursuit of peace."—Michael Korda
