The 1973 Yom Kippur War rewrote the textbook on the tactics of modern armored warfare. Unlike the previous major Arab-Israeli war of 1967, the Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) faced an enemy that had invested heavily in modern Soviet weapon systems and tactics. Using detailed colour artwork and insightful analysis, this book explains how the effective use of the Soviet-supplied AT-3 Sagger (9M14 Malyutka) anti-tank missile allowed small Arab tank-killing teams to destroy Israeli armor at an astonishing rate. It also analyses the tank that opposed it, the US-built M60A1, which had to fight for survival against the Arab Saggers, and shows how in both the Sinai and the Golan Heights, the IDF quickly learned that firepower and infantry/artillery cooperation were the keys to their survival.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Chris McNab uses first person accounts to bring the reader into the fray. The section on Operation Gazelle, the Israeli counter-offensive, dives deep into the most intense clash of the war between the M60 MBT and the AT-3 Sagger. This intensity is supported by a two page painting from Johnny Shumate." - IPMS / USA

"This volume in the series really does show what can be done with this format with the right subject matter and an author who can combine the actual combat actions with comprehensive and relevant background information to provide a comprehensive picture of why the duel is important in the larger sense." - AMPS
