Kenneth Love, R.I.P.

Kenneth Love, the former New York Times correspondent in Cairo and Tehran, died May 13, 2013.  He was 88.  His Suez: The Twice Fought War is a gem.  The book remains a riveting and invaluable account of the 1956 Suez war and the June war of 1967.  He had impressive contacts in Egypt, and he was a master of wonderfully researched reportage.  I admired his talent.
