In Egypt, the clandestine revolutionary Free Officers Movement

was composed of young junior army officers committed to unseating

the Egyptian monarchy and its British advisors. It was founded by

Colonel Gamal Abdel Nasser in the aftermath of Egypt's sense of

national disgrace from the War of 1948.
