A revised edition of the definitive history of the 1973 Arab-Israeli conflict--including new information previously subject to military censorship--by the journalist who covered it for The Jerusalem Post . In 2004, Schocken published this galvanizing account of what became known as the Yom Kippur War. The surprise two-front war triggered apocalyptic visions in Israel, hopes and fears in the Arab world, and heated internal conflicts on both sides. Using extensive interviews and declassified materials, Rabinovich masterfully outlined the story of this war in this critically acclaimed volume. More than a decade later, new information--formerly blocked by military censorship--has come to light. Previously unexamined sources, transcripts, and tape recordings now offer an even more complex and intriguing history of the war. With this new information, Rabinovich revisits his classic account of the war and updates it with new stories, new facts, and new photographs, further establishing The Yom Kippur War as our most trusted and definitive source on the subject.
