A stunning profile in courage of Israeli paratroopers in the crucial battle of the 1967 Mideast War!
Lt. General Mordechai Gur, who played a major role in Israel's military operations since statehood, has vividly written an unforgettable account of the events surrounding the critical Battle for Jerusalem during the 1967 Mideast War. The goal in the battle was the Temple Mount, possession of which was a 2,000 year-old dream for Jews everywhere. General Gur's fast paced narrative brings alive all the tension, terror, uncertainty, hope and desperation of the conflict. The moment when General Gur signals headquarters, "The Temple Mount is in our hands. Repeat. The Temple Mount is ours," is a breathtaking emotional capstone during a week of conflict that riveted the world.

With tensions escalating again in this part of the world, Gur's book should prove popular. It was first printed in the United States in 1978, four years after its release in Israel.
