"This is the book that every serious student of the Arab-Israeli Wars and the IDF has been waiting for. There is nothing like this book in print in English. As a battalion commander in the war, General Sakal has unique personal insight, but his analysis is nonetheless precise, balanced, and unflinching." -- Major General David T. Zabecki, USA (Ret.)

""A fascinating study that makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the 1973 Yom Kippur/Ramadan War. Based on extensive interviews, the author has provided a detailed critique of the faulty assumptions and lack of planning that contributed to the disastrous early battles in the Sinai in October 1973." -- Jonathan M. House, author of "Combined Arms Warfare in the Twentieth Century"" --

"Several English-language books and articles have described the Yom Kippur War, but none offers a more detailed account of the early phase of the Sinai campaign than "Soldier in the Sinai. [...] "Rich in operational and tactical detail and firsthand observations, the book is packed with insights and lessons for historians and military professionals." -- "Michigan War Studies Review"

This is not a history of the Yom Kippur War like Herzog's or Rabinovitch's, it is not even an account of the war in first person like "In both sides of Suez". Though the writer was commanding a tank battalion at war's eve in Sinai, and offers some vignettes of how was the fighting in the first days of the war, the importance of this book is another. First of all gaves hard data about IDF situation and order of battle in Sinai in 1973; moreover brings light to the concept, deployment and implementation of the Israeli counterattack plan, "Dovecote". Besides offers a through examination of the Bar Lev Line, again Sakal goes to the genesis of the idea, the building of the fortifications and eventually how did they withstand the rigors of combat and the real influence they had in the outcome of the fighting. Sakal also portrays the chaos which permeated the Southern Command before the Egyptian attack, making some harsh -but very soundly based- judgments of the top IDF generals. To cap it all, IAF role in the first days of the fighting is thoroughly analyzed. Sakal's narrative is dense, but rather articulated, with the book being a veritable treasure trove of data about IDF. Whereas it will never be a best seller, it is a rather valuable addition to the library of any serious student of the Middle East Wars: enlightening, innovative and unbiased. It would have been perfect in case of covering the rest of the operations in Sinai with the same level of detail which offers for the first days of combat, but then perhaps the book would have morphed into an unpublicable leviathan or a Glantz-esque monster like the last books written by col David Glantz. Anyway, let's hope there will be more english translations of israeli books by this publisher.
