The Lion's Last Roar: Suez, 1956

By Chester L. Cooper

Harper, 1978, 310 pp.

An American official stationed at the London Embassy at the time of Suez narrates the dramatic events of that hapless period, with blunt portraits of the leading culprits, including John Foster Dulles. A nice mix of historical reconstruction and autobiographical recollections.
