Páginas: 302 Géneros: 12:0:0 Sinopsis: 'I am dangling beneath my parachute. Gazing down from a height of 10,000 feet, knowing I am going to be killed in less than fifteen minutes, I feel great sorrow for myself. None of my fellow pilots who've parachuted into the Nile Delta have survived the encounter with the welcoming committee below, and I have no reason to think my fate will be any different.' -- Giora Romm, Solitary 'Giora Romm's Solitary seized me from the opening paragraph. Yes, the storytelling is spellbinding, but it is Romm's explication of the theme of the fall, ordeal and self-resurrection that places his book not only among the finest war writing ever but, like Viktor Frankl's Man's Search for Meaning, alongside the most profound reflections on the resilience and capacity of the human soul.' -Steven Pressfield, bestselling author of Gates of Fire and The War of Art In June 1967, Lt. Giora Romm shot down five MiGs in the Six Day War. This remarkable feat made Romm, at twenty-two years old, the Israeli Air Force's first fighter ace. Just two years and a half years later, in another dogfight, Romm's Mirage jet was shot down over the Nile Delta. With one arm broken and the opposite leg shattered by violent ejection from the aircraft, Romm collected himself and prepared for the worst. If his captors discovered his 'Hero of the Six Day War' identity, Romm would become the most prized propaganda tool in the Arab-Israeli conflict, bar none. How he maintained his sanity in solitary confinement, in a plaster cast that extended from his toes to his chest, while suffering beatings and daily interrogation, strains comprehension. Solitary is destined to become mandatory reading not just at military academies and synagogues, but in hospices, rehabilitation centers and creative writing programs around the world._,
