TEVETH, Shabtai. [Moshe Dayan].


Item Number: 118109

London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, 1972.

First edition of the renowned journalist’s biography of Israeli commander Moshe Dayan. Octavo, original cloth, illustrated. Presentation copy, lengthily inscribed by the author in the year of publication on the half-title page, “To Vera and Isaac, for their music and friendship (and occasional Caviar & Vodka) – with love, Shabtai Teveth Tel Aviv, November 19 1972.” Very good in a good dust jacket. Jacket design by Alex Berlyne.

Based upon extensive research, including many exclusive interviews with Dayan and his comrades, Teveth here reveals the multitude and contradictions that have characterized Dayan's life. Born on the first kibbutz, a victim and victor in thirty years of armed struggle to secure the survival of the Jewish community in Israel, Dayan was not only a brilliant soldier and one of the greatest generals in modern history, but a man who possessed all of the qualities of the popular hero: courage, self-reliance, and ambition.
