Abstract:

Few leaders have faced more daunting challenges than Anwar el Sadat when he ascended to Egypts presidency in 1970. This courageous statesman appraised his countrys dismal situation and then acted in a manner designed to assure Egypts survival and its leadership role in the Arab community. The author will review the facts and assumptions made by President Sadat in the early 1970s, and identify the primary threat to Egypts national interests. Next, he will briefly list Sadats foreign policy objectives, the resources and power he could bring to bear, and his plan to accomplish those objectives. Finally, the author will touch on the lessons in statecraft that can be gleaned from the events surrounding the October 1973 war between Egypt and Israel.
