This article analyzes the book "Red Wolves of Yemen: The Struggle for Independence," by Vitaly Naumkin. This book focuses on fighters from the tribes of Radfan, who on October 14, 1963 raised an armed revolt that grew into a war for the liberation of South Yemen. The book is devoted to the history of the liberation struggle in South Arabia, starting from the origins of the patriotic movement and down to the period of internal confrontation in 1967-1969, which resulted in the coming to power in independent South Yemen of the left wing of the National Front — the Marxist-oriented national radicals.
