Sixty years have passed since the Suez crisis of 1956. This article deals with the major events and issues surrounding the crisis, leading to war and to a major international crisis involving the two superpowers and their allies. Battles were fought in the air, on the ground and on the diplomatic fronts of the United Nations Organization.
