I remember watching Walter Cronkite's "20th Century" as a boy. I was facisinated by costal guns and for some reason.
Remembered the emplacements at Sharm el Sheik when I went to the Sinai in '85 as part of the MFO. The mounts are still there (or were in '85) along with mine fields, unexploded ordnance, etc.

Very interesting.

I have long wondered, if Eisenhower had been president during the formation of Israel, if he may have gone about it in a way that wouldn't have created so many future problems for Israel.

My father fought in the '56 Sinai campaign. Thank you for posting this.

The reason posts like this are so important is that there are many in the U.S. and Europe who want to rewrite history and make it seem that the '56 war was an "Israeli aggression" against Egypt and one of many "Israeli aggressions" against the poor, innocent Arabs. Trying to blockade a nation and choke it economically is an act of war and this is precisely what Egypt did. Israel's response was, as always, defensive in nature.
