    There would be no further attempt to implement Tagar. The IAF was launched into defensive actions to blunt the initial assaults of the combined air forces of Egypt and Syria. This title provides a day-by-day look at the IAF during the war. At this stage, with not a single Israeli plane downed, the air force commander, Maj.

    If the Egyptian tanks crossed into Sinai this day or even the next, Saturday, there would still be time to defeat them and cross the canal westward before the anticipated cease-fire came into effect. It could be the key to winning the war. Under no circumstances, said Dayan, should Israel request a cease-fire; but he recommended informing Washington that it was withdrawing its previous objections to a cease-fire. At this stage, with not a single Israeli plane downed, the air force commander, Maj. The same planes would attack in two cycles, doubling the number of bombs. But Sadat had made his decision and there was nothing Ismail could do but obey and pray.

    On the Golan front, Israeli troops, at heavy cost, repulsed the Syrians and advanced to the edge of the Golan plateau on the road to Damascus. Initially staggered, the ground forces recovered brilliantly. US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger had told Ambassador Simcha Dinitz that he could not delay much longer a cease-fire resolution which the Soviets were pressing for. The reluctance of the United States to help Israel changed rapidly when the Soviet Union commenced its own resupply effort to Egypt and Syria. The reader is left to ponder how these young Israelis could have had more common sense than the politicians who surrendered so much of the lands liberated in that feature so prominently in the book. The Egyptian army had advanced 12 kilometers into Sinai.

The Yom Kippur war book

Israel was receiving no military supplies from abroad except for what the small El Al fleet could carry the American airlift would begin only the next day ; the only reinforcements it was receiving were Israeli reservists returning for the war from studies or travel abroad.

Bar-Lev spoke in optimistic terms of what a crossing could accomplish, including severing of supply lines to the Third Army bridgehead in Sinai and destruction of SAM missile batteries.

And as Israel regains its psychological balance, General Ariel Sharon leads a nighttime counterattack across the Suez Canal through a narrow hole in the Egyptian line -- the turning point of the war.

Yom Kippur is the tenth day of the month of Tishrei in the Hebrew calendar. He left behind his aide-de-camp, Gen. The drones sent electronic signals activating the Syrian radars, which had been kept dormant to avoid being targeted.

It was time now to weigh the next step in Sinai, a pivotal decision that would determine the outcome of the war. Officers and soldiers were confident they could handle anything the Israelis could throw at them. They showed Egyptian tanks, fuel and supply trucks, troop carriers, and other vehicles lined up for miles, packed together virtually bumper to bumper on narrow desert roads waiting to cross into Sinai on pontoon bridges being assembled in the water.

Bar-Lev arrived from Sinai at a. However, Israeli attacks later repelled the Syrian forces and pushed them back further into Syria. This article was most recently revised and updated by Emily RodriguezCopy Editor.

A message from Prime Minister Meir—sent Friday afternoon, Israel time—had just arrived saying that Israel was prepared to accept a cease-fire in place. Marine Corps, U. After conferring with the generals under his command, Bar-Lev had come to the same conclusion as Elazar.

Elazar asked Peled to stop bombing the bridges in order to lure them in. Israel and Egypt signed a cease-fire agreement in November and peace agreements on January 18, This is because Jews are sure that God will forgive them on this day.

The war began on the Jewish day of repentance of Yom Kippur inand it happened during the Muslim month of Ramadan. The IAF opened the battle remotely by dispatching drones to overfly the SAMs and the radar-controlled antiaircraft guns protecting them.

Political considerations were to be left to the political leadership. Israel tried for the next few days to defeat the Egyptians and push them back behind the canal.

Yom Kippur

The revolution that occurred was one in the way Jews from all over the world viewed Zionism and the State of Israel and their nexus with Jews and Judaism. The United States of America started sending ammunition and weapons to Israel using airplanes to help the Israeli army win the war in Operation Nickel Grass.

Prime minister Golda Meir touring the southern front with Maj. Separately, we learn about two Egyptian informants for the Mossad who provided vital information that directly impacted the battlefield.

When the war started, Israel had serviceable aircraft and 82 in maintenance. The Israelis had not attempted to advance since Gen. There is a very interesting look at each IAF base, which squadrons were assigned to each base, and what aircraft types were operated by each squadron.

Israeli losses were one Skyhawk and two helicopters downed by conventional antiaircraft fire. But Sadat had made his decision and there was nothing Ismail could do but obey and pray. Meir dismissed the offer. While I've gathered a number of titles covering IAF and Israeli Army operations, this is one of the first I've seen that provides detailed information on the operations, kills and losses by tail number during this conflict.Abraham Rabinovich's The Yom Kippur War: The Epic Encounter That Transformed the Middle East is a fast-moving and authoritative account of the war Egypt and Syria launched against Israel in.

The Yom Kippur War: The History and Legacy of the Arab-Israeli War and Its Impact on the Middle East Peace Process, looks at the last conventional war fought between the Israelis and Arabs, and the aftermath.

Along with a bibliography, you will learn about the Yom Kippur War like never before. The Yom Kippur War was a watershed moment in the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the modern Middle East more broadly. It marked the beginning of a US-led peace process between Israel and her Arab neighbours; it introduced oil diplomacy as a new means of leverage in international politics; and it affected irreversibly the development of the European Community and the Palestinian.
