An American military analyst's day-by-day narrative of Israel's campaign in Lebanon in 1982, with an introductory sketch of the history and organization of the Israel Defense Forces. In writing this account, based on official reports, articles in military journals, conversations with Israeli participants and a visit to the area, the author strives for balance and objectivity, but the approach is wholly from the Israeli side, evident both in the description of the campaign and in the comments on Palestinians and the PLO.
