Abstract:

"Autumn of Fury reads like a political thriller. It is also a salutory revelation. For years Sadat, the actor manqué, played a part before Western audiences, who were happy to see only what they wanted to see. For years Sadat's censors prevented Mr Heikal from telling the truth as he knew it. Now the truth can be told. Sadat dramatically transformed Nasser's Egypt. He expelled the Russians; he almost archived victory over Israel in October 1973; he allied himself with the Americans; and he made a separate peace with Israel."--Jacket.
