Abstract:

Until October, 1973 President Anwar Sadat was just another actor under the patronage of the Soviet Union on the regional Arab stage. Approximately one month later he was a player on the world stage of international politics, an achievement recognized by his contemporary, Henry Kissinger, as strategically brilliant. How did Sadat make the leap What were his objectives and how did he reach them This essay will look for answers by analyzing Sadats circumstances and performance as he prepared for the October War using a number of the constructs of the design for national security strategy originated by Professor Terry Deibel.
