DUEL FOR THE GOLAN: The 100-Hour Battle That Saved Israel. An inferior number of Israelis inflicted one of the greatest defeats in modern military history upon awe-inspiring Arab armored forces. Amazing!!

Click to EnlargeDUEL FOR THE GOLAN: The 100-Hour Battle That Saved Israel, by Jerry Asher with Eric Hamel. The first Saturday in October 1973: A traditional Jewish Sabbath in Israel. It is also Yom Kippur, and the Israeli Defense Force is preparing to observe the holiest of the Jewish holy days.

Meanwhile the Syrian army, the greatest achievement of the modern Syrian state, is massed on the Golan Heights. Together with newly arrived Soviet-made equipment, 1,200 main battle tanks, 1,000 armored personnel carriers, 1,000 artillery pieces, and more than 100 mobile antiaircraft missile carriers are ready to strike in a lightning-swift offensive that will drive to the sea and cut Israel in two.

This 1987 book was the first to be written on the Golan Heights aspect of the Yom Kippur War on 1973. It is well researched and based on interviews with participants from both sides of the fighting. It is a compelling account of one of the greatest tank battles fought since WWII.

This fine work also includes intimate details of tank-to-tank fighting. Most importantly, it offers an explanation of how an inferior number of Israelis was capable of inflicting one of the greatest defeats in modern military history upon awe-inspiring Arab armored forces. Soft cover. 288 pages.
