The War of Atonement: October, 1973

By Major-General Chaim Herzog

Little, Brown, 1975, 300 pp.

A fascinating insider's account of Israel's side of the Yom Kippur War by a former senior general officer. Herzog, recently appointed Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations, is fair but unafraid to voice criticisms of his country's military and political leaders.
