Product Details
Eilam presents a personal treatise reflecting his analyses and insights as he focuses on the military aspect of the Arab-Israeli conflict. Drawing from hundreds of notes, books, and articles, including dozens of documents from Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) archives from the 1950s to the early 1970s, he explores various perspectives of Israel’s high-intensity, hybrid and low-intensity wars. Aiming to provide different perspectives on the long, complicated and diverse struggle between Israel and the Arabs, he examines the manner in which Israel fought its wars from 1948 to 2014. Nine chapters and conclusion are: Israel’s national strategy and its high-intensity wars; Israel’s combat doctrine in a high-intensity war; the strategic linkage between Israel’s high-intensity, hybrid and low-intensity wars; the IDF in fighting low- and high-intensity wars; fire in the backyard; fighting hybrid adversaries; Israel’s military strategy and doctrine and its resemblance to western states; the U.S.-Vietnam War and the Israeli-Hezbollah War in the 1990s; the high- and low-intensity war in Libya in 2011. There is a bibliography, chapter notes, and illustrations. Annotation ©2016 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (
