3.0 out of 5 stars Study materiel
A book full of information and detail on this event,but the author is not a writer but a fighter. Any person who has heard a bullit pass will recognise the writer as a man with their nightmares, and as such this book is a good example of what is called the "Fog of War" and how a person focusses only on what affects them whenunder extreme stress.
I will read it again.

This review is from: Duel for the Golan: The 100-Hour Battle That Saved Israel (Paperback)
This excellent, absorbing book analyses in considerable detail the conflict on the Golan Heights between Israeli and Syrian led forces during the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
The study presenting a number of interviews taken over a five year period from participants of both sides during the fighting.
An encounter described here and by many knowledgable, independent observers, as including one of the greatest tank battles fought anywhere since World War 2. Many intimate, gripping accounts of "tank against tank" battles during the combat are also provided.
The "make-up" of opposing forces during the conflict will astonish many readers.
The book is also commendably replete with remarkable, individual accounts of incredible courage in the face of what is cited as a numerically greater enemy on the field of battle.
The text of this work leaves the reader with a clear understanding of what an Israeli defeat in this conflict would have entailed.
Another issue from this study which hits the reader with equal force is the possible consequences of a furtherance of the conflict from the point of eventual ceasefire, where Israeli artillery had reached striking range of the Syrian capital city of Damascus.
The reader being provided with an essential understanding of the military significance of the Golan Heights.
This is really an essential study for anyone interested in Middle Eastern history, the Arab-Israeli conflict or indeed military experience.
A highly recommended, excellent account of yet another pivotal battle in this turbulent region.
