How will Israel's next war unfold and what will be its surprising aftermath? This epic war novel tells the exciting story of Israel's next war through the eyes and words of those who fight in it and those who observe the fighting from up close. It begins when the leaders of Syria, Iraq and Iran negotiate a coalition from among the various militias and armies of Iraq, Syria, and Iran - and focus them on suddenly attacking Israel instead of fighting each other. Israel calls up its reserves and fights back. The result is a vicious war which yields unexpected results for everyone in it - and forever changes the politics and borders of the Middle East.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Basically, this book is a mess. I gutted it out until the end, but it was not easy to read.
The author provides no sense of the time period, the passage of time.
No less than six characters are presented in first person. Meaning six characters are speaking in first person. I still do not understand the purpose of the Iraqi Lt. Colonel.
The narrative switches between first person characters with barely any notification. The author should have followed the Jeff Shaara method of story construction.
Towards the end of the story the Israeli prime minister is named as PM Begin, suggesting the time period is the 1980s?
Basically, the whole thing is a mess.
Martin Archer exhibits an in-depth knowledge of Israel, its region, its people, and the military challenges it faces. Told from multiple participant viewpoints, Israel's Next War is an excitingand believable race toward major change in that troubled area of the world. The author ends his tale with a unique twist and exciting prospect of possible future peace.
Too bad that so interesting and important a subject is insulted with this non-novel (a chain of opinions and political jabs). I expected to be taken into the motivations and character of the Israeli defense system as it acts, for good or ill, to see a real novelist's take on a future crisis. Instead, this clumsy and boring attempt, without the authority of non-fiction or the charm of real fiction.
