As well as describing every campaign in absorbing and incisive detail - full of desperate defensive actions against massive odds in outlying settlements, fast-paced armoured battles, and breathtaking strategy - Herzog highlights the personal and political struggles that have determined the Middle East conflict.Chaim Herzog, former president of Israel, had the advantage of personally knowing the generals and politicians who have worked to ensure the state's survival against seemingly overwhelming odds.

This edition has a new introduction by the author's son Michael Herzog.
