    Abraham Rabinovich has written the best kind of history with The Yom Kippur War as focused and detailed as the text under a scholar s magnifying glass, as sweeping and cinematic as the landscapes in a David Lean epic.The Yom Kippur War itself was as dramatic an episode as any in the modern Middle East Six short years before, Israel had won one of the most convincing military victories any nation has ever won in war it had captured 42,000 square miles, swelling the country to three and a hal Abraham Rabinovich has written the best kind of history with The Yom Kippur War as focused and detailed as the text under a scholar s magnifying glass, as sweeping and cinematic as the landscapes in a David Lean epic.The Yom Kippur War itself was as dramatic an episode as any in the modern Middle East Six short years before, Israel had won one of the most convincing military victories any nation has ever won in war it had captured 42,000 square miles, swelling the country to three and a half times its original size after six short days of fighting Perhaps inevitably, this easy victory led to self satisfaction bordering on hubris amongst the Israelis As Rabinovich relates, the nation s military intelligence officers assum...

    By far the best general narrative on the war of 1973 written so far Rabinovich s book, while written necessarily from the Israeli point of view given the paucity of Arab primary sources on the war, especially from Syria is objective as it can be The war itself is covered at all levels, from governmental down to the experiences of individual soldiers But perhaps the best part is the exploration of the pre war hubris and arrogance of the IDF and of Israel in general after the victories in the By far the best general narrative on the war of 1973 written so far Rabinovich s book, while written necessarily from the Israeli point of view given the paucity of Arab primary sources on the war, especially from Syria is objective as it can be The war itself i...

    The history of the modern Middle East is complicated enough to begin with but when you throw in this rich, detailed examination of one of the most complex and curious wars ever fought between Israel and its Arab neighbors, the word complicated doesn t even begin to do it justice and one thing is for certain Abraham Rabinovich, US Army Veteran and journalist in both the United States and Israel has managed to produce what may well be the definitive account of a very complicated war.So what h The history of the modern Middle East is complicated enough to begin with but when you throw in this rich, detailed examination of one of the most complex and curious wars ever fought between Israel and its Arab neighbors, the word complicated doesn t even begin to do it justice and one thing is for certain Abraham Rabinovich, US Army Veteran and journalist in both the United States and Israel has managed to produce what may well be the definitive account of a very complicated war.So what happened Well, in a sense, the Yom Kippur War or October War, as it s known in the Arab world was made almost inevitable by Israel s stunning triumph in the Six Day War of 1967 Quick history lesson June 1967, Israel launches a pre emptive surprise attack on pretty much all of its neighbors, destroys the mighty Egyptian Air Force ON ...

    This was one of the better military history books I ve ever read, and I ve read a LOT of them over the years I ve long heard of the Yom Kippur War, but didn t really know any significant details, other than the combatants and the outcome which turned out to be wrong the outcome was muchcomplex than I had believed This book not only filled in the gaps, but ha...

    Rabinowich provides one of the best tactical operational accounts of a major modern war I ve ever read Accounting for the fact that only the Israeli archives have been opened or perhaps even kept in the first place, the author does an amazing job of describing the combat and decision making on the ground in the Sinai and the Golan Further, he gives an excellent account of the technological, doctrinal, and tactical changes that allowed the Egyptians to make stunning gains in the beginning Rabinowich provides one of the best tactical operational accounts of a major modern war I ve ever read Accounting for the fact that only the Israeli archives have been opened or perhaps even kept in the first place, the author does an amazing job of describing the combat and decision making on the ground in the Sinai and the Golan Further, he gives an excellent account of the technological, doctrinal, and tactical changes that allowed the Egyptians to make stunning gains in the beginning as well as the operational and organizational shortcomings of the IDF in the wake of their overwhelming victory in the Six Day War Perhaps the author s only real shortcoming is the relatively limited shrift given to the grand strategic and geopolitical ramifications of the conflict while the elements of superpower and regional confrontation and diplomacy are detailed, the vi...

    I finished a couple of books this week First was The Yom Kippur War The Epic Encounter That Transformed The Middle East by Abraham Rabinovich It was significantly better than The Eve of Destruction If you re interested in the Arab Israeli peace process it is fundamental that you understand this war This book explains the change in political mindset of the Egyptians and Israelis brought about by this war better than any other I ve read It explains the stalemate created by the 6 Day War and I finished a couple of books this week First was The Yom Kippur War The Epic Encounter That Transformed The Middle East by Abraham Rabinovich It was significantly better than The Eve of Destruction If you re interested in the Arab Israeli peace process it is fundamental that you understand this war This book explains the change in political mindset of the Egyptians and Israelis brought about by this war better than any other I ve read It explains the stalemate created by the 6 Day War and the W...

    I found this to be an excellent book, that tells the story of the Yom Kippur war from the strategic all the way down to the tactical level The book is very clear about the mistakes that both sides made, and how the Yom Kippur war lead to the later Israeli Egyptian peace pacts The only downside to the book is that the Egyptian Syrian side of the story is not given a lot of the story, Rabinovich preferring to tell the story fromof the Israeli viewpoint He is, however, very fair when it I found this to be an excellent book, that tells the story of the Yom Kippur war from the strategic all the way down to the tactical level The book is very clear about the mistakes that both sides made, and how the Yom Kippur war lead to the later Israeli Egyptian peace pacts The on...

    Perhaps the most thorough book on the subject matter Despite this fact it is tremendously readable It is a step above No Victor, No Vanquished by Edgar O Ballance Which I loved as well due to the fact it presentsinformation that is now available that O ballance didnt have access to when he wrote his book so close to the end of the conflict Personally I think the pair go together perfectly, No Victor, No Vanquished as an excellent intro laying the ground work and this for the follow Perhaps the most thorough book on the subject matter Despite this fact it is tremendously readable It is a step above No Victor, No Vanquished by Edgar O Ballance Which I loved as we...
