The Yom Kippur War 1973 : Golan Heights Pt.1 Paperback
Illustrated by Kevin Lyles
Part of the Osprey Campaign S. series
The October War or "Yom Kippur" War of 1973 was precipitated by the Arab states of the Middle East, primarily Egypt and Syria, in an attempt to force Israel to the negotiating table.
Protected by the territories she had conquered in the 1967 "Six Day War", Israel had little incentive to negotiate.
The carefully coordinated attacks launched by Egypt and Syria in the Sinai and on the Golan Heights respectively achieved complete tactical surprise.
This work details the Syrian assault on the strategically vital Golan Heights.

Review by Shrike58
This is Osprey at it's best, as you get a concise analysis of the forces involved and the strategic situation, how the battle played out, and a consideration of what the campaign meant; along with good maps!
