This is the third edition of this book, first published in 2000. This interesting and readable book provides detailed accounts of the Israeli Independence War, the Six Day War, the Yom Kippur War, and the two Lebanon wars. The book offers far less detailed accounts of the Sinai 1956 War, and the 1968–1970 War of Attrition. Bregman also analyses the 1987–1993 Intifada, and the so-called Al-Aqsa Intifada (2000–2005) although both cannot be called wars in conventional terms. Bregman’s distinctive insights relate to the Liberty Affair during the Six Day War, and the significant role of the Egyptian double agent in the Yom Kippur War.
