Chaim Herzog, former President of Israel, was involved in every conflict involving Israel and its Arab neighbors from before the 1948 War of Independence. The Arab-Israeli Wars is Herzogs acclaimed history of Israels fight since 1947 to preserve her existence against repeated attacks. Riveting, informative, and comprehensive, this authoritative account tells the story of Israels struggle to survive but gives a clear picture of the people and politics that continue to shape the destiny of this crucial region. "A volume that anyone who wants to understand what Israel has endured will have to read" (The New York Times Book Review).
