    Egypt, The Middle East and Africa without Nasser?

    So, basically, assume that Gamal Abdel Nasser is fatally wounded while fighting the IDF in 1948 and promptly dies there. Come 1952, who would lead the Egyptian Revolution instead?

  10. Are there any good TLs on the Suez Crisis?

    I've been looking through the search function, but that doesn't really turn up anything.
