This book describes in detail for the first time Allied contingency plans for military operations in the Middle East in the event of a global conflict with the Soviet Union. It argues that the diplomatic events and crises in the Middle East during the first decade after WWII can be understood only in the context of the military and strategic assets sought by the Allies in that region, in view of the perceived Soviet Threat. Professor Cohen brings a new, comprehensive understanding of the major events of this decade: the Truman Doctrine, the protracted Anglo-Egyptian crisis; the first Arab-Israeli War; the tripartite declaration and the formation of the Baghdad Pact. This valuable study also records the reluctance of the United States to do what eventually became inevitable - to take over Britain's traditional hegemony in the Near and Middle East.
