Ties of blood and empire: New Zealand's involvement in Middle East defence and the Suez Crisis, 1947-1957
Auckland University Press in association with the New Zealand Institute of International Affairs, Nov 17, 1994 - Foreign Language Study - 278 pages
This fascinating and detailed account of how New Zealand supported Britain in its ill-fated 1956 invasion of Egypt describes how the New Zealand government was deceived about the collusion between Britain, France, and Israel, and how it was torn between its ties with Briain, its alliance with the United States, and its adherence to the United Nations Charter.
