Description

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 breath-taking emotional capstone during a week of conflict that riveted the world.
