Detailed Narrative By Two Israeli Journalists On The Origins, Conduct, And Political Repercussions Of The Lebanon War, Based On Previously Unreleased Documents And Interviews With High [ Pdf Israel's Lebanon War ê lds-fiction PDF ] by Ze'ev Schiff ì Officials This book is brilliant,5 stars says it all
The Lebanese civil war is one of the most complicated conflicts of the modern era Then take into account Israel s invasion, occupation, PLO retreat, Syrian, Iranian, US and French involvement and you have a quagmire or sifting loyalties, death, destruction, retreats and military disasters with long term repercussions. This book does a great job at explaining the situation as it was in 1982 Sharon s belief in striking a major blow at an elusive enemy growing stronger by the day in a foreign country, his deceptive military plan and the establishments trust in a war hero to do what he will. The book also chronicles the sifting loyalties between Sunni, Shite, Druze, PLO, Christian and Syrian players and correctly depicts the ruling Christian Pha I was pleasantly surprised what a good study of Israel war with Lebanon in 1982 I had purchased in this instant history book. Although I do not agree with all of the books conclusions it does appear that as all too common in this region and many others that Israel went into this war without due diligence Everyone in the Israeli leadership had their own goals and aims Many did not realise that they were going to war So Israel went into the conflict without a plan how to fight This probably costed them many troops lives. On the Lebanese side, it appears the Phalangist desperate to remain in power made promises that they never intended or could deliver I found it strange that never did Israel top leadership ask experts who I am sure they had many, to review the situation there for them first Once Israel was in Lebanon, it found itself without any major ally Condemned by almost everyone
