This book derives from the extensive coverage of the fourth Arab-Israeli war in the London Sunday Times during October 1973. Research into the causes and conduct of the war continued, however, for some time after the cease-fire. We have also taken advantage of the lag between publication of the British and the present American edition to incorporate considerable material not earlier available and to correct several errors of fact or interpretation in the previous work.
The text has thus been ex¬tensively rewritten and greatly expanded. The efforts of other inquirers and the pressures of politics in several countries, not least the United States, make it inevitable th2t new facts and assessments on aspects of the war will continue to emerge for some years. But sufficient facts can already be pieced together, it seems to us, to make it possible to outline with some precision the main events of a remarkable conflict. That is what this book tries to do.
