This review is from: Arab-Israeli Wars (Vintage) (Paperback)
It is hard when writting about the rab-Israeli conflict to provide a accurate ,comprehensive and balanced account.
Mr Herzog was an Israeli president and was involved in most Arab-Israeli wars and he provides a first hand account of the events from the British occupation to the Libanon wars.
He tries to provide a view from the Arab side ,including many interesting quotes from arab leaders.
The 1973 Yom Kipur war is particularly well covered and conveys a senses of shock and fight to the last in the isolated Israeli outposts until help arrived.
It also covers the terrorism theat and operations against terrorists groups.
Overall all a really good militar history book written by a true witness of the events.
