Description - Ariel Sharon: a Life in Times of Turmoil by Freddy Eytan
This title offers a chronicle of recent Israeli-Palestinian politics, with more than one hundred pages of little-known documents including correspondence between Jerusalem and Washington, by a former Israeli Ambassador. For more than fifty years now, Ariel Sharon has been a significant player on the stage of Israeli politics. The former general, a hero of the Six Day and October Wars, is a man who pulled off spectacular military victories, but who also suffered humiliating failures such as the Lebanon adventure. Ariel Sharon is a man of legend, a figure of high controversy, a man now lying at the edge of death but whose strength as Prime Minister of the Jewish state placed him at the crossroads of his people's destiny. At the age of seventy-eight, he waged his ultimate combat on many fronts, simultaneously fighting enemies on all sides of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict including recalcitrant settlers and political adversaries within his own Likud Party, in the end at the expense of his own health, to achieve a peace settlement with the Palestinians, with or without their active participation.
