Fire and Steel
Bargain Book Copy
Fire and Steel relives the electrifying annals of the armored brigade known as the "Brigade of Heroes."
The force: Israel's 7th Armored Brigade has rewritten the manuals of armored warfare, surpassed the limits of courage under fire, and impressed military experts everywhere as the finest tank unit in the world.
The men: They're the elite of a nation's youth, marked by gun grease, suffused with the stench of cordite, and devoted to guarding some of modern history's hardest-won ground.
The armor: To begin with, it was bought and stolen World War II surplus tanks; now the Brigade uses the Merkava - the world's most awesome tank.
Here is the story of: * The breathtaking 72 hours during the 1967 Six-Day War as Centurion crews drove all the way to the banks of the Suez Canal. * The bitterly won fight for the Valley of Tears in the Golan Heights that turned the tide of the 1973 Yom Kippur War. * The bloody campaign for the Beirut-Damascus Highway during the 1982 invasion of Lebanon, which resulted in the obliteration of dozens of Syrian tanks.
