English author. His English is as delightful as the tempo he maintains in weaving his tales is intricate making for a compelling reading. He must have meant that he (Saddam Hussein) must have made a mess of things when he said ‘he made a camel’s breakfast of it’.

The expression was used by one of today's greatest English novelists:
, in his book
The Fist of God
. It probably means as one of you suggested that someone has made a mess of things or as another sggested, quite similar to the expression 'making a dog's breakfast' of things. I have looked for it in various English language resources but could not find it. That is the reason why I have posted it on this forum. Thanks for your participation.

Can somebody suggest what the expression means? It has been used in a sentence as: "He made a camel's breakfast out of it".
