    They don't know how I really feel about what they're doing to this country. I can honestly say that few books on military history I've read since entering college have been half as good as this one was, and this is one I read just for myself and I consider it time very well spent. Jordanian King Hussein feared another major loss of territory, as had occurred in the Six-Day War, in which Jordan lost all of the West Bank, territory it had conquered and annexed in —49, which had doubled its population. Before the war, it was specialized in distributing subtle propaganda attacks against the Jordanian and Saudi Arabia monarchies.

    This is an order. America was willing to go to War, and possibly even nuclear war, with the Russians to prevent Russian military forces injecting themselves into the Middles East. Notwithstanding Abba Eban's Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs in insistence that this was indeed the case, there seems to be no solid evidence to corroborate his claim. The eight participating states — Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, and Sudan — passed a resolution that would later become known as the "three no's": there would be no peace, no recognition and no negotiation with Israel. During the Yom Kippor War inSaeed had already been 'shelved'. The only really weak section in the entire volume is that covering opposing armies, which is only four pages in length.

    This article was most recently revised and updated by Emily RodriguezCopy Editor. Presidency Further information: History of Egypt under Anwar Sadat Some of the major events of Sadat's presidency were his "Corrective Revolution" to consolidate power, the break with Egypt's long-time ally and aid-giver the USSRthe October War with Israel, the Camp David peace treaty with Israel, the "opening up" or Infitah of Egypt's economy, and lastly his assassination in Henry Kissinger believed that the regional balance of power hinged on maintaining Israel's military dominance over Arab countries, and that an Arab victory in the region would strengthen Soviet influence. The Israelis immediately followed up their victory with a sprinting counterattack that pushed some units straight to the Suez Canal where they crossed, under fire, into Africa. Brezhnev said that if Israel did not, "we will have difficulty keeping the military situation from flaring up"—an indication that the Soviet Union had been unable to restrain Sadat's plans. The treaty still holds to this day.

Neither Arab force was aimed at the annihilation of the Jewish state, rather both Sadat and Assad had hoped to defeat the IDF in a quick campaign, regain lost territory and restore the Arab dominance of Middle Eastern politics and strategic position.

Both the Egyptian and Israeli air forces are fairly ignored, with no order of battle provided, or breakdown by type.
