Excellent field-tactics descriptions for those who, like me, are interested in all the details. Very ínformative illustrations. Good analysis of the political situation before the armed conflict.Good analysis of the misjudgments of both sides. The advantages and disadvantages of fixed defences compared to fluid defences are clear. I found this book very informative. I found what I wanted. I would have liked to know that book no.1 on the Syrian front existed too before I ordered this one. I would have bought both of them.

I remember living this period whilst at school in the UK and comparisns with the six day war in 1967 so is very interesting to understand the background now that I'm no longer a kiddie winkie. Pictures, maps and text are all excellent - well it is an Osprey book - andhighly recommended to all interested in the period, or region.
