"Ron Leshem has succeeded in creating an entire world, simply through language" (David Grossman)
" Beaufort is that rare thing, a novel of deep moral concern in which sympathetically drawn and beautifully realized characters are allowed to speak for themselves... A gripping first novel... A must read" ( LA Times)
"Flamboyant yet gripping, the novel comes to a thrilling climax with the soldiers' perilous evacuation from Beaufort" ( Independent)
"Skilfully sketches the alternating terror and tedium of war" ( The Economist)
"An important novel...This is a picture of war from a soldier's point of view. Its language is crude, the body count rises, and yet the tenderness of the bonds among the men is extraordinary" ( Library Journal)
Beaufort, a remote and beautiful fort in southern Lebanon dating back to the Crusades, has been an outpost of the Israeli Defence Force for nearly twenty years. Now, for the teenage soldiers who live there, it has become a world of its own. Subject to constant, terrifying attack, the fort has become an enclave in the heart of enemy territory where its boy soldiers create a state with its own rules and its own unique, outrageous, brutal language.
Beaufort is a revolutionary and potent story of thirteen young men forced together to endure the last winter of Israeli occupation, missing family, home and their purpose in a war that has been forced upon them.
