About the Book -- The Walls of Israel

Surrounded on all borders but its western coastline by hostile and aggressive neighbors, the state of Israel resembles the walled city of the Middle Ages. But its walls are not stone and mortar, they are flesh and blood葉hey are the soldiers, both men and women葉he airmen, the intelligence, the tankscorpsmen and the paratroops. These young people庸rom the old ghettos of Europe, from the cities of North Africa and Asia, native-born Sabras預re the protecting wall that keeps Israel free.

The Walls of Israel is Jean Lartéguy's fascinating 1968 study of the Israeli armed forces. Talking with them, living with them, joining in their operations (he was taken along on a nighttime ambush set up to catch Syrian infiltrators), Lartéguy got to know the Israeli soldier as few could. From this book, wide ranging and filled with lively anecdotes, emerges a picture of an army, tough and determined, yet intelligent and realistic enough to foresee a long and dangerous road ahead before a peace is won.
