An Introduction to the Yemen Civil War
September 26, 1962, marked the end of a thousand-year religious dynasty in Yemen. Muhammad al-Badr, the last ruling imam, was overthrown and replaced by a weak republic. Over the next six years, Yemen was dominated by a civil war between al-Badr’s royalists and the supporters of the new republic. The conflict in Yemen did not conform to the ideological divides of either the Global Cold War, between the United States and the USSR, or the Arab Cold War, between Saudi-led Arab monarchies and Egypt-led Arab nationalists. Rather, the chaos of the Yemen Civil War opened the doors of this previously isolated country to a combination of international organizations, clandestine operations, and visionary individuals who transformed Yemen into an arena for global conflict.
