The Suez Canal is the busiest shipping channel in the world: every second of its downtime costs the global economy about $111,000. Unsurprisingly, countries and governments have vied to control the strategic waterway connecting the Red and the Mediterranean Seas throughout its existence. In the new episode of HOW IT WAS, you will find out about numerous international conflicts that the Suez Canal provoked throughout its history. We will also tell you about how and when the channel first appeared, why it was buried for a thousand years, why Napoleon's attempt to restore it had failed, and what caused the longest Suez Canal blockage.
