    what about the airlift?

    This book is reviting at times, especially Blum's account of the tank battles on the Golan Heights. But he does not dwell too much on the tank battles in the Sinai. Matter of fact the ending of this terrible war comes very abruptly when Mr Blum describes Israel crossing the Suez Canal and then the war is over. It leaves you wanting for more. Blum also does a terrible disservice to former Pres Richard Nixon by not describing how Israel was able to overcome its terrible losses in the first days of this war by receiving massive amounts of supplies from Nixon who sent transport after transport to Israel. Those tanks were not even painted. Yes, the Israelis drove them and flew the Phantoms, but without the airlift Israel might not be here today. A book based simply on interviews, and it shows!

    GREAT BOOK

    For anyone interested in the Arab-Israeli conflict, this book is simply awsome. I always wanted to better understand how Israel could be caught off guard soo badly, and also how Egypt and Syria could end up losing the war after such a powerful start. This book answers all the questions, and is a great read.

    Exciting and easy to read

    This book concentrates on the Israelis and Egyptians actually doing the preparation (or non-preparation) and fighting of the Yom Kippur War. Even tho one knows what happened the suspense and drama are great as we await the war and then get into the fighting. While solidly researched this is not the usual history of a war. Rather it is more in a category such as Black Hawk Down--we are with the actors in the drama. Fast-paced, suspenseful, revealing--anyone interested in Israel, war, or the events which shaped today's world will want to read this.
