Further to this post,
there is a new book on the 1956 crisis, in the defusing of which Canadians take inordinate pride based on our country’s supposedly crucial role and on external affairs minister’s Nobel-prize winning part in helping establish a UN peacekeeping force:
Oddly enough the rest of the world remains almost blissfully oblivious to that great moment in our history; there no note of Canada or Mike Pearson in this British review of the new book nor in this American one (second section at the link). We really should have a bit more humility, i.e. a realistic appreciation of our importance.
Canadian Suez Policy was not About the Middle East
