From Publishers Weekly:

Jews, both men and women, who have fought or led their people in military or paramilitary actions are eloquently recalled here by Israel's president, starting with biblical figures. The author points out the special physical and moral courage of each, and the conditions and enemies against which they battled: Joshua at Jericho, Deborah, judge and prophetess turned warrior, nation-builder David, intrepid Bar-Kokhba and the zealots of Masada. Massacres of Jews in the modern European era, he stresses, dwarf even those by Muslims and Christians in the Middle Ages. Led by Ben-Gurion, first president of the Zionist State, the 1948 War of Independence and successive victories in wars against Arabs produced more heroes in Herzog's canon and left the stamp of General Moshe Dayan and Golda Meir on modern Israel. The author ends with the Entebbe rescue operation of 1976 and thereby avoids addressing controversial actions of more recent years. Photos.

From Library Journal:

Herzog, President of the State of Israel, has written a passionate, sensitive, and compelling book about the exploits of an intriguing and somewhat controversial selection of military heroes from the biblical, post-biblical, and modern periods, ranging from Joshua through the Nili spies to the Entebbe rescue. His stirring descriptions of the faith, steadfastness, loyalty, and unswerving devotion to principles on the part of his subjects evoke admiration. He emphasizes traits of resilience, resourcefulness, daring, and courage in both biblical and modern-day heroes. Feats of the modern-day figures are illuminated by extensive background material on major historic events. Fascinating illustrations enhance the text and inspire added appreciation for the bravery of these individuals.
