With his distinctive eye patch, Israeli military commander Moshe Dayan looked every part the fearsome warrior, yet he was far more. This unflinching biography paints a complete portrait of Dayan the military man and statesman. Starting with his early days in the Haganah, a group of underground Jewish fighters, the biography follows Dyan’s career as a highly decorated star pilot- as the leader of the Israeli forces during the 1967 Six Day War and the October 1973 war- and as a master diplomat who played an instrumental role in negotiating the historic treaty with Anwar Sadat’s Egypt.
