9780805211245: The Yom Kippur War: The Epic Encounter That Transformed the Middle East

A galvanizing account of the 1973 Yom Kippur War by a journalist who covered it for The Jerusalem Post.
 
The most dramatic of the Arab-Israeli conflicts, the surprise two-front war triggered apocalyptic visions in Israel, hopes and fears in the Arab world, and heated internal conflicts on both sides. Using extensive interviews and personal stories, as well as recently declassified materials, Abraham Rabinovich begins his masterful narrative as Israel is convincing itself there will be no war, while the Arabs are in fact plotting it. The account continues through the explosive start of hostilities and follows the harrowing conflict to its climactic end.

From the Inside Flap:

In this galvanizing account of the most dramatic of the Arab-Israeli hostilities, Abraham Rabinovich, who reported the conflict for the Jerusalem Post, transports us into the midst of the 1973 Yom Kippur War.
Rabinovich's masterly narrative begins as Israel convinces itself there will be no war, while Egypt and Syria plot the two-front conflict. Then, on Yom Kippur, Saturday, October 6, 1973, we see Arab armies pouring across the shattered Bar-Lev Line in the Sinai and through the Golan defenses. Even the famed Israeli air force could not stop them. On the Golan alone, Syria sent 1,460 tanks against Israel's 177, and 115 artillery batteries against Israel's 11. And for the first time, footsoldiers wielding anti-tank weapons were able to stop tank charges, while surface-to-air missiles protected those troops from air attack
Rabinovich takes us into this inferno and into the inner sanctums of military and political decision making. He allows us to witness the dramatic turnaround that had the Syrians on the run by the following Wednesday and the great counterattack across the Suez Canal that, once begun, took international intervention to halt.
Using extensive interviews with both participants and observers, and with access to recently declassified materials, Rabinovich shows that the drama of the war lay not only in the battles but also in the apocalyptic visions it triggered in Israel, the hopes and fears it inspired in the Arab world, the heated conflicts on both sides about the conduct of the war, and the concurrent American face-off with the Soviets in Washington, D.C., Moscow, and the Mediterranean. A comprehensive account of one of the pivotal conflicts of the twentiethcentury.

"From the Hardcover edition.

From the Back Cover:

"The Yom Kippur War of 1973, exceeding in scope even the 1942 Battle of al-Alamein, has found its ideal chronicler. Abraham Rabinovich has long enjoyed a distinguished reputation for the acuity of his insights into Middle Eastern political and military issues. Nevertheless, while his earlier articles and books have been widely read and praised, the current volume may well be his magnum opus. Its revelations are astonishing. Its prose is gripping. Its conclusions, richly documented and austerely objective, are intensely relevant to the Middle Eastern crisis of our own day."
--Howard M. Sachar, author of A History of Israel From the Rise of Zionism to Our Own Time

“As no one before, Abraham Rabinovich recounts the whole story of the 1973 Yom Kippur War, that most elusive round of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Based primarily on Israeli sources, his well-written history skillfully covers everything from the individual soldier’s experience to the deep implications of the war."
--Daniel Pipes, author of Miniatures: Views of Islamic and Middle Eastern Politics
