About this product
- DescriptionA 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 mir 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 ecomic 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.
- Author BiographyDavid A. Nichols, a leading expert on the Eisenhower presidency, is the author of A Matter of Justice: Eisenhower and the Beginning of the Civil Rights Revolution and Lincoln and the Indians. He lives in Winfield, Kansas.
