Download 1973: The Road to War by Yigal Kipnis PDF

By Yigal Kipnis

Israeli historian Yigal Kipnis delves deep into the Israeli and American data and divulges during this booklet that the large October 1973 warfare among Israel and its Arab friends might potentially were avoided.  refrained from, that's, if within the months previous October 1973, Israeli leading Minister Golda Meir, who was once dealing with elections, had no longer been so decided to dam the continuing peace negotiations with Egypt, and if U.S. Secretary of kingdom Henry Kissinger (despite his misgivings) had no longer subsidized up her diplomatic challenging line. Kipnis contradicts the traditional knowledge, arguing convincingly that it used to be Israeli political intransigence, now not a failure of Israel’s army intelligence, that set the degree for the 1973 war.

The Hebrew-language unique of 1973: the line to struggle made nice waves whilst it was once released in Israel.
