We are your soldiers : how Gama Abdel Nasser remade the Arab world / Alex Rowell.

Rowell, Alex, (author.).


We Are Your Soldiers examines seven countries-Egypt, Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Yemen, and Libya-weaving the epic tale of Nasser's dramatic encounters with each to reassess his impact in the Arab sphere. These engagements were often drenched in blood and destruction, leaving deep scars that endure to the present. Rowell shows how the Nasser years were crucial to the formation of regimes as varied as Bashar al-Assad's Syria, Muammar al-Gaddafi's Libya, Saddam Hussein's Iraq and Abd al-Fattah al-Sisi's Egypt. Crushing democracy at home while launching wars and slaying opponents abroad, Nasser ushered in the long political winter from which the region is still yet to emerge.
