Since its foundation, the state of Israel has endured almost constant violence. Israel's Wars is a fascinating and essential insight into the turbulent history of this troubled country. From the 1947-8 Jewish-Palestinian struggle for mastery of the land of Palestine to the on-going Al-Aqsa intifada and the second Lebanon war, this book exposes hitherto unknown facts, including details of secret Soviet involvement in inciting the 1967 Six Day War, Israeli bombing of the American warship the USS Liberty, and Israeli assassinations of leading Palestinians during the Al-Aqsa intifada. Now with additional maps and photographs, this new edition is fully updated throughout. It includes a new section on the second Lebanon war, and a fully revised and updated section on the Al-Aqsa intifida, both of which feature exclusive, previously unpublished material.
