About the Author
Major General Emanuel Sakal, IDF (Ret.), served as commander of the Ground Corps Command and was awarded the Medal of Courage.
"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
