Review "In defining the scope of his military history of Egypt, McGregor has sought to focus on military forces serving the various rulers of Egypt from 1517, the Ottoman conquest, to the Arab-Israeli wars, as opposed to those who may have fought on Egyptian territory but had little to do with the Egyptians themselves, such as Bernard Montgomery or Erwin Rommel. The work describes the role of the Egyptian military in shaping Middle East history and that of the wider world and also considers the on-the-ground experiences of those who fought the battles and wars described." - Reference & Research Book News "[C]harts the evolution of one of the world's oldest civilizations and its military structure. Where other histories would survey Egypt's strategic location alone, this charts the nation's soldiers and their battles, surveying the history of their fighting at home and abroad and linking this history to developments in the region as a whole. With its roots in ancient and medieval culture, A Military History of Modern Egypt is packed with excellent detail and insights." - Midwest Book Review - California Bookwatch "Andrew McGregor's new book attempts a daunting feat--distilling 460 years of Egyptian military history into just over 300 pages. The first effort to do so in any language, it provides a handy reference tool." - The Journal of Military History "McGregor offers a military history of modern Egypt from the Ottoman Turkish conquest of Egypt in 1517 to the Ramadan War with Israel in 1973. He stresses the role of Egypt and the Egyptians during this almost 500-year period when Egypt was subjected to foreign rule--Mamluk or Turkish or British. The book reviews, for example, Muhammad Ali's aspirations in Arabia, Greece, and Syria and Britain's imperial misadventures in the Sudan. For readers interested in the evolution of military tactics and technology, not to mention the brutality of warfare and the careless loss of military and nonmilitary lives. Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." - Choice Book Description Focusing on the Egyptians instead of on the imperial powers that have ruled or intervened in the country, this work tells the untold story of Egyptian military's place in the modern history of the Arab and Islamic world.
