Eeverything in Jerusalem is connected to the Jewish history: There is the Wailing Wall – remnant of the devastated Temple. In this old Holy City’s streets – prophets-poets were walking and shouting about the sins of the Israeli kings and other ruling classes and high society richmen, and demanding Social Justic. erusalem was captured many times but re-settled, and now besieged again. Other rumors said the opposite, and others added that there were many wounded remaining on the battle-field, but some had succeeded to escape and got back to our lines; these escapers didn’t report about it, as they were still fighting in other frontiers.

Lost Python
As one might expect, Gen. Gur is not one to pull punches. He won me over early in the book with his description of the opening day of the Six Day War when momentarily, many of the Israeli troops were not certain they were actually at war yet -- they saw planes taking off and landing but most did not know exactly what was going on. The fog of war on the first day. In any case, Gur is a true war hero but you would never guess from his prose which is down to earth, sober and sobering in his account of the battle.
Many readers will be familiar with Michael Oren's excellent recent work entitled `Six Days Of War' which relates to the 1967 Arab-Israeli war.
Perhaps the most significant event of that conflict was the actual battle for Jerusalem which saw Israel once again in control of the whole of Jerusalem, including east Jerusalem, the Temple Mount and the Western Wall. Areas so long occupied by Jordan.
Monumental events that have since held intense, international, political and religious significance. Even today Jerusalem is central to the Middle East 'peace process' and the stumbling block to virtually all negotations. The momentous events described here eventually resulting in Jerusalem going on to be officially declared as the eternal and indivisible capital of Israel during August 1980. A fact yet to be recognised by most of the international community.
Israeli Lt. General Mordechai Gur, the first to break through and reach the Temple Mount provides an excellent, firsthand account of the events leading up to, during, and following the 1967 battle for Jerusalem and the actual taking of the Temple Mount during the conflict.
This is a highly personal, intense account of the actual fighting. You feel as if you are there with the troops on the ground. Those familiar with the streets and environs of Jerusalem & the Old City will be even more so.
The progress of the actual battle against the well-armed and well-trained Jordanian forces is documented throughout and the momentous sentiment expressed towards the end when suddenly at the Western Wall is almost palpable.
An exceedingly well written, moving account which proceeds at a rapid pace hardly pausing for breath from once incident to another. Highly recommended.

Mordechai Gur was the commander of the Israeli forces in the battle for Jerusalem in the June 1967 Arab-Israeli war. His account of the war also relates part of the political background of the war, including the decision to take the Old City of Jerusalem only after Israel had been attacked by Jordanian forces. Gur gives a detailed account of the battle including the heroic struggle against the entrenched Jordanian forces in Ammunition Hill, and the dramatic taking of the Old City, the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. It was Gur who in the first rush of excitement electrified the people of Israel with his cry ' The Temple Mount is in our hands'. Gur was a strong, quiet soldier, a heroic person who served his country and people well in a distinguished military career. The taking of Jerusalem was the climax of that career and he tells the story in an accurate, and reliable way without great frills but with a deep and restrained feeling .
I found this book while at the Las Vegas airport. The book was in the bargain area of the bookstore. I decided to pick up the book, as I am a huge history buff. I could not believe that a book about so important an occasion in military history could be found in the bargain area. As I found out after I started to read, there was a reason why the book was in the bargain area. My main problem with book was with the way it is written. The book is written as if it were a diary or journal. There is very little background information given. No backstory. No explaination as to people and places. Figures come and go without regard. It is just poorly written. The guy who wrote it was a general who participated in the battle for Jerusalem, but he is no writer. My secondary issue has to do with lack of pictures, diagrams, photos, etc.. The only picture is that of a crudley drawn map of the city of Jerusalem. Hate to be a bummer. Love the history - hate the book. Glad I got it for a pittance, because I left it at the airport for someone else to judge. I understand that the book was originally written in hebrew, and then translatted. Maybe something was lost in translation. Not everyone is a writter.
Motta délivre une excellente narration minutée des opérations de sa brigade parachutiste. Mais le langage est très technique et ceux qui manquent de connaissances militaires peinreront parfois à suivre. Le livre manque surtout d'une introduction qui situe l'action de la brigade parachutiste au sein des forces du commandement centre et de cartes détaillées.
