In the years that preceded the October 1973 Yom Kippur War, Israel invested heavily in the creation of a heavy attack force of four F-4 Phantom/Kurnass squadrons.
They would fly 3,000+ sorties, claim 80+ kills, and suffer 30+ losses during the nineteen days of one of the most intensive, savage wars in modern military history.
This book delves into the details of individual Israeli F-4 Phantom/Kurnass crew missions and their day-to-day operations during the war.
This is a must for anyone with interest in F-4 Phantom operations, Israeli Air Force heritage, and modern military history.
