Moshe Dayan (Great Commanders) by Martin Van Creveld
Moshe Dayan (Great Commanders) by Martin Van Creveld
This book is a wonderful introduction to Moshe Dayan and Israel, unfortunatly it is very short and doesnt detail many parts of his fascinating life. Of great interest is the expose on his affairs and on his tour of vietnam as well as the revelations that his peers felt he might very well be an 'arab' and the interesting stories of his deep friendships with Arabs. Nevertheless the military campaigns are glosssed over and one might be happier reading his own accounts of the Sinai campaign or reading another history of the IDF since this book is slightly weak.
Highly recommended as an introduction, and a decent biographical sketch of Israels warrior politician.
