The Suez crisis of the second half of 1956 was a result of the Egyptian President, Colonel Nasser trying to nationalise and control the Suez Canal, the 120 mile stretch of which had come under the jurisdiction of both France and Great Britain. The situation escalated and in November 1956, Operation Musketeer comprising British, French and Israeli Forces attacked Port Said and took up positions to recapture the Canal. Although the mission was successful, the whole exercise came under scrutiny and the forces were withdrawn in favour of a UN peacekeeping force being deployed. Britain's reputation suffered a heavy blow and the Prime Minister Sir Anthony Eden resigned.
