Britain and the Yemen Civil War, 1962-1965 : Ministers, Mercenaries and Mandarins - Foreign Policy and the Limits of Covert Action Hardback
by Clive Jones
Examines the extent to which British policy, while successful in imposing a war of attrition upon Nasser in the Yemen, contributed to the political demise of the very objective covert action was designed to secure.
It breaks new ground by analyzing the extent to which Britain came to support the Royalist cause despite public declarations of non-involvement in the Yemen conflict, and details for the first time how London's tacit support for 'mercenary operations' in the Yemen came to enlist the help of Saudi Arabia and Israel.
