Abstract:The coup by army officers in the Yemen on September 26, 1962, against the Imam Muhammad al-Badr, precipitated the first actual intervention by an Arab army in another Arab state and, as a result, involved at least two of the regional powers, Egypt and Saudi Arabia, in a protracted political and military conflict which spanned the best part of six years. The author endeavors to answer two main questions: what were the causes of the Egyptian intervention and, secondly, having decided to intervene, what type of policy alternatives did the Egyptian decisionmakers pursue and how did they execute these policy options politically and militarily in the international arena and within the Yemen itself?
