At 1345hrs on 6th October 1973, Israeli spotters in the observation post
atop Mount Hermon saw Syrian gunners below them removing the camouflage nets
from their guns. Ten minutes later shells began to rain down on Israeli
positions all along the Golan Heights – The Yom Kippur War had begun. The shock
Syrian attack caught the Israelis by surprise and by the afternoon of 7th
October a Syrian brigade was less than 10 km from the Sea of Galilee. Simon
Dunstan describes in detail how amid desperate and bitter fighting the Israeli
forces managed to turn the tide on the Golan Heights. Contents: Origins of the
Campaign * Chronology * Opposing Commanders * The Syrian Army * The Israeli Army
* The Fall of Mount Hermon * Repulse at Amadiye * Breakthrough at Rafid * The
Israeli counter-offensive * The recapture of Mount Hermon * Aftermath *
Bibliography * The battlefield Today * Wargaming the Golan campaign * Index *
