“Al-Mandouh” Recalls Memories of Victory at the Bibliotheca Alexandrina

Posted on

At the invitation of Prof. Ahmed Zayed, Director of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina, Major General Osama Al-Mandouh, one of the heroes of the October War and former Deputy Head of the General Intelligence Service, will be a guest at the Library on Monday, 3 October 2022, at 12:00 pm, in the BACC Small Theater. The meeting will witness a discussion of Al-Mandouh’s book Khalaf Khuṭūṭ Al-ʻAdūw (Behind Enemy Lines), where he recalls memories of his role in this battle of victory.

It is worth mentioning that the book Khalaf Khuṭūṭ Al-ʻAdūw (Behind Enemy Lines), received a very positive response immediately upon its release in Egyptian cultural and political circles. It tells the story of one of the most remarkable heroic acts of the Egyptian Armed Forces during the October War, when an Egyptian reconnaissance group, led by Captain Mandouh, was stationed behind enemy lines, and close to their main command post in Umm Marjam, and at the Meliz Military Airport, which is located about 100 kilometers east of the Suez Canal.
