Drawing on interviews with dozens of key participants, the author in this account explodes many myths about the Six Day War of 1967, about the Black September crisis of 1970, the October War of 1973, the Lebanese Civil War of 1973, and that of 1975-76, about how Egypt made peace with Israel and Iraq went to war against Iran, and about Israel’s invasion of Lebanon in 1982 with its ugly sequel of anarchy, violence and hostage-taking.
