Israeli historian Yigal Kipnis delves deep into the Israeli and American files and divulges during this booklet that the massive October 1973 warfare among Israel and its Arab friends may well potentially were avoided.  shunned, that's, if within the months previous October 1973, Israeli leading Minister Golda Meir, who was once dealing with elections, had now not been so decided to dam the continuing peace negotiations with Egypt, and if U.S. Secretary of country Henry Kissinger (despite his misgivings) had no longer subsidized up her diplomatic tough line. Kipnis contradicts the traditional knowledge, arguing convincingly that it used to be Israeli political intransigence, now not a failure of Israel’s army intelligence, that set the level for the 1973 war.

The Hebrew-language unique of 1973: the line to battle made nice waves whilst it was once released in Israel.
