    This is a series I made back in 2018, re-released as a single documentary, which always seems a more popular format. This is the story of the 1956 Suez Crisis, when the world faced an international energy supply crisis, politicians warned of repeating the mistakes of 1930s appeasement, and a Russian leader was sending tanks into a European capital to crush hopes of greater freedom... The sort of events that until recently, we might have hoped were consigned to history.

      An interesting thing was the fallout from this. The South African port of Cape Town, was absolutely overrun. We had so much business from the companies who had to bypass to alternative routes that for the next 20 years we got masses of income.

      @Ahmed Salama Ali excuses. america didnt fund the israeli military until atleast the 70s, and the amount of money and aid the USA sends and has sent to israel is largely played up. and while yes, europeans did help israel, european aid does not overpower a coalition of however many arab countries.
      plus, the egyptians were funded by the soviets

    In 1956 I was a cadet in my school CCF unit. At about the time the Suez crisis was developing our CCF contingent was at a 2 week annual "camp" at HMS St Vincent in Gosport. HMS ST Vincent was a shore training unit for cadets and boy seaman presumably prior to their assignment as junior seamen on Royal Navy ships. For the first part of our stay there we were the only boys there to experience the Royal Navy services. This included a naked one length swim of the very cold pool before breakfast. During our stay there we visited HMS Dolphin, a submarine depot where we shown on board on one of the vessels. We also visited a Gunnery practice range where we allowed to operate a shore based anti aircraft gun installation (no ammo!). To aid our experience the marine aircraft section provided a real aircraft "attacking" our position from over the horizon. We were to control the gun to follow this target and "shoot it down". We were not very good at that!. Our term at St Vincent was cut short when all boy seamen from the carriers and support vessels in port were transferred to HMS St Vincent. Boy seamen were not permitted on active service. The ships were preparing to leave on the Suez campaign... On our penultimate day at the camp we had a race to climb the flag mast. The race was to touch the "cap" at the top. I think I won that.. ! I am now 83y.o. and the fond memories remain.

    Although there’s one thing the British did gain from the Suez Crisis…
    The creation of the Mini Cooper.
    The Suez Crisis caused oil and fuel prices to sky rocket, which made running a car very expensive. Various manufacturers tried to build smaller cars to make increase fuel efficiency, but they were so small that they weren’t popular.
    Then Mini came up with a good idea. Instead mounting the engine longitudinally, they mount it transversely. Which in turn allowed them to make the engine bay more compact and make the car big enough to fit four, fully, grown adults inside. And more importantly, it was very fuel efficient. On average the Mini was able to do 56mpg, which is a lot. And to this day, car manufacturers still mount the engines transversely. Not all cars have that, but it’s still a very popular design

    My late aunt was a schoolteacher at the time of the War of the Tripartite Aggression. Even before the war broke out, all the schoolteachers and the secondary school students capable of bearing arms in her Cairo district-males and females-had undergone a military education course, including live firearms instruction using the Lee-Enfield bolt-action rifle. They were taught range estimation, windage estimation, and shooting at moving targets. They were also taught grenade-throwing, how to prepare and best use Molotov cocktails, and things of that nature. It was a very comprehensive course.
    Once the war broke out, teachers and students who had passed the course were issued rifles and ammunition to keep in their homes, in the event that the foreign invaders reached Cairo. They were expected to provide assistance to Egyptian Army, National Guard, and Police units in their area as needed. In the event that there were no local Army/NG/Police officers that they could receive orders from, they were ordered to resist invading forces at their own initiative, to the best of their ability, for as long as possible. After the war ended and the threat had receded, the teachers and students returned the firearms and ammunition back to the authorities.
    Nearly 40 years after the war, when I was just a teenager, I owned a 4.5mm (.177 caliber) air rifle. My aunt had just told me about the military training that she had received in her twenties. I asked her to show me. May Allah be my witness, she proved that she had forgotten nothing from that military training course. Even on a gusty day, she was able to estimate windage like a pro, and even with that weak air rifle of mine, was able to hit consistent groups on the target from both standing and kneeling positions, even at the extreme range of the rifle. Just imagine, a dignified lady, in her late sixties, in a hijab and long dress, having a great time scoring bullseyes, proud that she hadn’t lost her touch even after almost 4 decades, and telling me that she wished that she had a real rifle, so she could teach me how to shoot for real. Truly, it was such an impressive moment, and I’ll never forget this memory of my late aunt. May Allah have mercy upon her soul and grant her Paradise!

    A narrow focus on just the political/military view. There were other significant effects.
    The push for supertankers came about as the world realised that reliance on the Suez Canal was potentially suicidal and so it made sense to develop ships that could fetch oil economically when going around Africa.
    Air transport was also given a boost for similar reasons.

    • gordon spicer

      but in reality steadily the canal was widened to accommodate all by the very largest ships. You insinuate that traffic around The Cape increased after Suez using larger tankers. Only briefly while the Canal was unblocked. It still retains its global importanc and air transport has not effected its popularity.. Oddly yesterday it was reported the Panama Canal was closed with hundreds of which on both ends waiting for passage through. The cause probably Climate Change drought !

      The suez crisis isn’t really talked about in American history classes because it creates a narrative that the modern school system is against: the US isn’t an objectively good or bad state, it’s a state run by hundreds of democratically elected people with varying agendas, leading to decisions that are both morally bad and good. The modern school system would prefer you think that the U.S. is evil and terrible, except for fighting the Nazis(the Japanese and Italians don’t matter because Japan makes anime and Italy is a good vacation spot🤪🤪). I’m not here to make a absolute political statement that all American school are indoctrinating students to hate the U.S., because that isn’t true, there are some great school districts that are in the middle, and there are some school districts that teach a false narrative that American is the world’s superhero and that it’s never done bad, but it’s undeniably true that the general direction that the school system is taking is towards a “hate the U.S.” narrative,

    My dad was there. He was a technician on Canberra bombers, he had a pet gecko while he was in Egypt, and a bullet hit his locker in the barracks one night.
    I was less than a year old at the time, but years later, wished I had talked to him more before the inevitable...

      Do you think he was right or not, but this question is wrong. He is ordered to do this and fight a war for his country to win something, and he did not know that he would die in this war in the end. I do not know whether I grieve for this or not because I am from Egypt, but it is really sad, but also What these soldiers did to the people of my country at this time makes me say, as you did to me, I will do.. and ask your father for mercy from God

      @♪ِAhmed There are two issues here:
      1: Politics - this is what caused the war (Egyptian politics) and also ended the war (US politics)
      2: God - With no god, most wars would be unlikely. (This is more historical than current, but old views are hard to shake off)
      All of the Middle-East is a hotbed of opinions, and ever since 1948, an extremely polarised area. There is no peace - you have my sympathy...

    I was living in Cairo shortly before all this blew up and had to make a fairly brisk exit under armed escort.There were 4 of us and at Cairo airport we were told there was a Comet departing but with only 3 seats and one in the jump seat.My Dad declined and we caught a Brittania out a few hours later. We found out later the Comet had blown up en route !!!

    My neighbor worked for one of the people that helped in construction of the dam when she was in college in the 60s. (An architect I think) She was surprised I knew about it, or the crisis. I'm not surprised. I don't recall ever hearing more than the name in school prior to my college world history class. Even then, they were only mentioned when briefly discussing who Nasser was with no further details given. I would be surprised if they even mention it at all pre college anymore here in the U.S.

    I was watching a live TV show of a parade in Cairo. A truck pulled up to the grand stand and several rebel soldiers jumped out and fired into the stands. Anwar Saddat, Nassar's successor, was killed. One Egyptian military officer had his arm shot off. Since it was live, they didn't have time to edit out the blood and guts. I'll never forget it.

    I appreciate how you give the political context in each region for events. Ie why the Egyptian population wasn't supportive of the monarchy anymore and why America didn't support this. It is amazing for people who weren't alive during this time. I am american and our education is extremely vague on the cold war. Basically just "we almost had nuclear war with the Russians". Kind of talk about Korea. We learn a TAD about Vietnam War. The more I learn about my countries actions and negligence in other regions in the world, the more I understand why its not in our textbooks.

    • Bart Sullivan
      Bart Sullivan 년 전 +16

      I concur, being an American we didn't hear a peep taunt to us about this issue or anything close to it by any teacher or instructor. A tiny bit about the Cuba Missile crisis but not clearly defined. You can clearly see why moves were made on both sides from the video. The game of politics is always sticky, and it seems like a Vietnam scenario, where the west was the aggressors and not the other way around. I actually understand more on the Israeli point of view with the Egyptian blockade in place disrupting their trade south. This was the time France and England were losing their colonies worldwide.

    • Stephen Jenkins

      By your own logic, the US would have never shut up about the Suez Crisis since the US took a part in ending colonialism and thus was on the "right side of history" in this case. The US doesn't celebrate much of its own achievements in world history, and often focuses on specific critical moments for US history and the collective psyche. The Suez Crisis, to be blunt, had little effect on either. Don't be obtuse and act like this is some conspiracy to ignore the US' bad actions -US history wouldn't focus so much on Native American ethnic cleansing and US mistreatment of minority groups if that was the case.

    • MarlboroDead
      MarlboroDead 년 전 +9

      @Stephen Jenkins I would agree, I wouldn't say the US just ignores the terrible things our country has done through history most people are aware, but I would also say our history books don't go that into detail on anything we do. Most of the history I've learned has been through my own research and curiosity.

      'The United States was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions, nor were we informed of them in advance, as it is the manifest right of any of these nations to take such decisions and actions, it is likewise our right if our judgement so dictates, for we *do not accept the use of force as a wise or proper instrument for the settlement of international disputes* ' - Dwight D. Eisenhower
      *stunned silence*
      Ike, you're a comedian. Funniest thing I've heard in a while. The world's most violent country, with the largest military, engaged in the most conflicts, constantly at war since its very creation, with 750 (official) military bases and troops in 150 countries, and that's just the ones that are publicly acknowledged (minus the many black sites). Hilarious, hypocrisy award goes to you sir
      Oh, and since when is any other sovereign nation obligated to inform you of their plans before they carry them out? That's the point of allies, you implicitly trust them, they don't need to hold your hand whenever they want to do something...

    I appreciate the information gained whilst watching this video. I am disturbed, though, that Canadian Prime Minister Pearson is not mentioned regarding the start of the United Nations, that for which he was awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 1956. Also, particularly since my father was one of the soldiers, it saddens me that it does not define the Canadian troops in Rafa as the contingent present for one year 1956 to 1957 as UNEF. Though his troops were present as peace keepers, my father lost an innumerable number of colleagues who were shot by Arabs. He himself remembers when in Rafa two particular events. One day, a large contingency of Egyptians stood on hills as he in his scout car were on No Man’s Land. Weapons were pointed at the two soldiers. My father pointed his weapon at the commanding officer and my father’s Lance Corporal had the Bren gun ready to fire. The soldiers disappeared as quickly as they appeared. The following day, however, hundreds of Egyptian soldiers appeared on the surrounding hills. Weapons were fired for close to an hour. The two Canadian soldiers were as close to the ground as possible in order to live. It seems that they were sending a message. Also, as they did not kill the two Canadian soldiers, it was a firm message. Almost seventy years later, my father remembers those moments so vividly. His experiences were but two of endless moments faced that year as UNEF. Many Canadians were buried in Rafa. Many Canadian soldiers did not come home. Even so, my father knows that our Canadian Forces members of the contingent 1956 to 1957 fulfilled their part in ensablons a No Man’s Land middle zone and peace for a duration.

      Thank you , C Graton for your comments. As a Canadian, I feel the same way. Was in grade 4 at the time and our teacher was so proud that Mr Pearson won the Nobel Peace prize, although that was several years before he was PM. My father was in the RCN ( navy) at the time . He was part of the contingent preparing the carrier, HMCS Magnificent for Suez deployment as a peacekeeping ship. I went with him one Saturday and still remember the endless rows of bunk beds set up on the hanger deck, and all the AA guns were removed from their mounts.
