The military has the monopoly of force and is the most organized
sector of a state's employees. The chance of a coup and subsequently a
military government is far more likely if the country is suffering
from internal strife and this has been the pattern for many developing
and post colonial nations. This paper attempts to prove this by using three examples of military governments after 1945, Egypt, Spain and Brazil.

From the Paper:

"In order to understand the underlying problems in the countries in which the military took over and formed a new government it is important to briefly outline the conditions that allowed them to take power and how they did this. This will give an insight into what tasks faced the new military regimes. In Egypt the take over was led by General Nasser who was leader of the Free Officers Movement. This movement was dedicated to overthrowing the British backed King Farouk. In July 1952 Nasser led the military coup against Farouk."
