وسام الدين محمد
There is an Arabic poem says:
When the horses of the enemy come
My people will remember me.
In the dark night
Everyone look for The full moon.

Nasser was a summer dream for every Arabian, and now when the Arab live in the nightmare, they remember this dream about a knight with brave heart who was came once day to release all the dreams.

This book is more than great, it brings the age of revolution and glory to my consciousness. A history without a propaganda.
Very basic and lacked detail. I feel I have a sense of who Nasser was but not much more.
