For years Middle East scholars and military historians had only a few English-language books examining the Arab-Israeli war from the Egyptian perspective: All presented a good sense of atmosphere and political perspective, but were short on many strategic and military details -- mostly because of the pervading air of strict censorship still surrounding anything to do with the Egyptian military.
All of them also paid scant attention to the war after the first few days, when Egypt lost its initiative and momentum and the tide turned in favor of the Israelis. Even though over 35 years have elapsed since the war, it seemed that there would never be a definitive, detailed, military account from the Egyptian side. The Egyptian military even commissioned one a few years ago, but has refused to declassify it. And all of these sources tended to walk a fine line between factual accounts and official myth-making.
Now, seemingly out of nowhere, and from a surprising source, comes this excellent book. The author, a former Israeli intelligence officer on the Sinai front prior to the War, knows his subject, from the perspective of an adversary.
He knows his Soviet military doctrine very well also, which is of great value in that the Egyptians followed this very closely. He seems to be unbiased, professional, and respectful if critical of the Egyptian soldiers and officers.

Most importantly, however, and where this book becomes truly superb, is in its extensive use of captured Egyptian military documents. Separate different tags with a comma. To include a comma in your tag, surround the tag with double quotes. Skip to content Skip to search.
