This is a very well researched book, which not only presents the life of Ariel Sharon, but also gives us great insight into the development of Israel. We see Ariel Sharon not only as the military man and prime minister, but also the victim of Israeli politics. He truly emerges as a real person, who had to endure personal tragedies. The book is engaging, and not to be missed if you wish to know more about Ariel Sharon and Israel.

Seems to be written with a left wing agenda. Content therefore questionable.
