An excellent account
on 29 October 2013
This is a very detailed, but eminently readable and absorbing account of the Yom Kippur War. What is particularly interesting is the description of all the misconceptions, false analyses, intellectual arrogance, tunnel vision etc. on the part of most of the Israeli military and intelligence apparatus prior to the war's outbreak. The same goes for both sides' underlying strategies and objectives, with the Arab perspective, by the way, being outlined in a thoroughly neutral fashion.
Certainly on a par with Michael B. Oren's account of the Six Day War, "Six Days in June".
