The first full account to be published of the Israeli campaign which, using rapid mobilization of Israel's citizen Army, the launching of its many-pronged attack, the intense fighting for the key passes, and the appearance of Israeli forces just short of the banks of the Suez Canal, drove the Egyptian Army out of the Sinai Peninsula in five short days late in 1956. A distinguished novelist and soldier reveals the inside story.
