Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

The geopolitical effects of the Six Day War, in 1967, have continued to exert immense power over both the Middle East and the wider world. So it is useful to be reminded that the war was fought over relatively small territories by generally young and inexperienced men on both sides. Pressfield has compiled an impressive collection of firsthand accounts by many men and women who took part in the war on the Israeli side. Some of these recollections are from professional soldiers who were veterans of the Israeli War of Independence or the 1956 Sinai campaign. But most interesting and poignant are the accounts by youthful citizen-soldiers who reveal their fears, hopes, and even their impatience with their political leaders as their nation moves toward war. Of course, this is a highly skewed collection, since we hear nothing from Egyptians, Syrians, or Palestinians. Still, this is an effective recounting of soldiers thrust, in a compressed time span, into life-and-death situations for themselves and their nation. --Jay Freeman

Review

“Few histories of this critical war peel back the layers of elation and tension running through the six days of battle like The Lion’s Gate.”
The Wall Street Journal


“Deeply reported and compellingly told.”
The Los Angeles Times


“I was in awe of The Lion’s Gate.

Huffington Post


“This story from the Israeli air force is one of the greatest management lessons you’ll read.”
Forbes

“A brilliant look into the psyche of combat. Where he once took us into the Spartan line of battle at Thermopylae, Steven Pressfield now takes us into the sands of the Sinai, the alleys of Old Jerusalem, and into the hearts and souls of soldiers winning a spectacularly improbable victory against daunting odds.”
General Stanley McChrystal, U.S. Army, ret.; author of My Share of the Task
