Following the partial Israeli withdrawal from Lebanon in 1985, this book provides a detailed description of the events leading to and during the 1982 Israeli invasion of Lebanon. While these events are of little interest to those not interested in regional history, they lay a solid framework for a short but accurate description of the Sabra and Shatila massacre. Taken out of context, this event is used today by Palestinians to smear Israel and Ariel Sharon. While the authors of this book are both Israelis, as am I, the dry, factual content of the book is indicatative of its validity. Also, at the time the book was written, the massacre was not yet the historical event it grew to be. All in all, this book is an excellent piece of journalism. The original title in hebrew is 'War of Deception' and while it is objective and factual, the title is a reflection of the conclusions drawn by the authors concerning Ariel Shron's role.Was this review helpful?
