The End of the European Empires? | The Suez Crisis | Part 5 5
UCLfMmOriSyPbd5JhHpnj4Ng

Whilst the fighting may be over, the Crisis certainly isn't. For starters, the three invaders may have agreed to a ceasefire, but aren't too keen to give up the land they've conquered. And even if this is resolved, what lies in wait for the humiliated ex-colonial powers? Ultimately, only one thing does seem certain - irreversible change.

So that's the end of our series on the Suez Crisis. It's been a pretty wild and messy ride, but we think our realtime format gave it a fresh perspective that hasn't done before.

If you liked that final point Indy made about Churchill and The Beatles, and you want to find out more about decolonisation, then you should look up the work of Bill Schwarz. He was the one who originally made the comparison in his book "White Man's World", and it's a really fascniating read, if also a bit challenging. Decolonisation is actually becoming a really vibrant field of study in academia and there are a whole host of books available if any of you want to dive into the topic. "Europe After Empire" by Elizabeth Buettner is an excellent place to start and "Fight or Flight" by Martin Thomas will be right up your street if you want to learn about the wars of decolonisation and the politics behind them. If you have any other suggestions then feel free to post them below.

Anyway, we hope you enjoyed the series and learnt a thing or two.

as a french person who has only been told of the suez crisis in passing, yet extensively about the algerian war, these episodes help put a lot of things in context.

Another outcome was, some years later, the new Canadian flag introduced under Lester B. Pearson's government, as Pearson understood the problem of Canadian troops being misidentified as British during the Suez peacekeeping operation.

For Panama, the Suez Crisis was an awakening: By seeing that the US supported the return of the Suez Canal under Egyptian control, the Panamanians started realizing that they also should control the international canal in the middle of their territory, the Panama Canal, and in January 1964, Panamanian students tried to raise the Panamanian flag in the schools of the U.S Panama Canal zone, and were violently repressed by the US troops. This movement triggered the negociations that led to the Torrijos-Carter treaty of 1977, providing for the transfer of the Canal under Panamanian control in december 1999....

Funny thing about Churchill. When he commented on Eden's handling of the Suez war he said that he would have never accepted military intervention but if he did he would have never pulled out until he achieved his objectives.

One long-term side effect in the UK might be their response to the Argentinian attack on the Falklands decades later, which was in part about "If we can't defend one of our few overseas territories, we'll have nothing left".
