During the twentieth century Israel has achieved notoriety, witnessing almost constant conflict and violence. Drawing on his considerable experience as a historian, journalist and soldier, Ahron Bregman offers a masterly account of Israel's wars with the Palestinians and the Arabs. From the 1947-8 Jewish-Palestinian struggle for the possession and mastery of the land of Palestine, through Israel's wars with its Arab neighbours, to the Intifada between 1987 and 1993, this book unearths new insights and exposes secrets never previously published.
Israel's Wars analyses the effect of the wars on the people of Israel. In the first decades, with the Holocaust fresh in their memories and fearing for their survival, Israelis demonstrated a great willingness to support and carry the burden of war - high taxes and long military service - as well as participating in the wars themselves. This book questions why from the late 1960s Israelis became more critical of their leadership, as well as the indifference to domestic problems created by the expense of war.
Israel's Wars is a fascinating and informative history of this intriguing and difficult period of Israel's past.
