For all those who skeptical about our victory please read this wonderful study by the American Major J.C. Moulton of United States Air Force from the Marine Corps University Command and Staff College published in year 1997
Just read it carefully it is a wonder excellent analysis to the war of 1973 based upon the Egyptian perspective , again the one who presented this research is an American Major in the United States Air Forces
Please read it
And if you finish reading and you still have nothing to do , I will recommend that you read another study also from the Marine Corps University Command and Staff College ,this time the study was made by Major Ibrahim Al-Jowder from the Bahrain Armed Forces in year 1997
And more and more reading will not harm you at all , so I advice to buy these books and read it carefully then may be you will have a better idea of who really won the war back then
I mean if Israel had won the war , why such a book like "In the eve of Destruction" was published !!??

General El-Shazaaly was the smiling man on President Sadaat left hand
Updated: Just for the record I posted the book and the website link to cover all what the Egyptian Perspective is saying but I should have said that Gen. El-Shazaaly has issues with President Sadaat ,the same old difference between a military and a politician , unfortunately in his book I posted below he forgot that some Israeli general said they should make the Arabs forget that they had a victory in 1973 ,so they would not dare again to think in that positive way and that he would give them the service of their life time in my point of view by his attack on President Sadaat and General Ismail whom he did not like since their work in the international Peace force in Africa in 1960s "MY grandfather was covering the situation in central Africa when he saw it alive Ismail VS. Shazaaly"
No body can say anything about Shazaaly and his great experience and it is enough to know that this man in 1967 was the only one to fight back inside Israel itself with his brigade which was the only brigade to return safe to Egypt after the withdrawal
But what he did to the next generations in this hard times is so dangerous ,because our generations need hopes

Another thing all the skepticals of 1973 always speak about El-Shazaaly but they forget about the Scary thin man aka Abd El-Ghanay El-Gamsy , the engineer of the 1973 war or General Abd El-Manam Wasl or any other generals who spoke about the war as if El-Shazaaly was the only patriot man in the commandership !! Why do not you bother yourself and read for those great men too at least you will get full image after all we are humans , they are not less patriot and their role was not less than his
THIS IS NOT THE WAR OF EL-SHAZAALY NOR EL-SADAAT NOR ANYOTHER LEADER OR COMMANDER THIS IS THE WAR OF THE EGYPTIANS , THE ARAB MINDSET LIKES THE IMAGE OF ONE HERO UNFORTUNATELY IT WAS NOT A ONE HERO WAR ,IT WAS A WHOLE ARMY WAR BACKED UP WITH A GREAT PEOPLE
ANOTHER THING DO TAKE EVERYTHING AL-JAZEERA CHANNEL AIRS AS GRANTED FACTED FROM THE HOLY BOOK THAT DOES NOT ACCEPT TO BE DEBATED OR TO BE FALSE ,I SAW EL-SHAZAALY WITH MANSOUR AND I FELT SORRY BECAUSE I KNOW WHERE MANSOUR WAS HEADING HIM TO ,AL-JAZEERA ALREADY IS ADOPTING THE FAMOUS ISRAELI MEDIA VERSION OF THE WAR THAT WE HAD LOST THE WAR
here are the confidential documents released by the NSA of the United States , the National Security Archive after 30 years in 2003
Updated: Also it won't be a bad thing to read the special section from Al-Ahram Weekly "Thanks to Green data",it covers the testimonies of Egyptian generals,officers and soldiers from those who believe they did something great to be comprehended by new generations who nothing to do except to sit on their asses throwing charges of great treason like throwing balls to each other by the way I do not agree that 1973 war will be the last war with Israel just like what President Sadaat said ,already I believe he knew that is not true either but he just said from a diplomatic perspective ,and of course those who knew him very well will confirm this just like late General Abd El-Ghanay El-Gamsy ,I once read for him saying that in AL-Wasat magazine interview "Al-Wasat was a weekly magazine used to be published by Al-Hayat Publishing house in London"
