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.
