The Avoidable War

During the October War of 1973, Israel’s military and political leadership, so confident of its superiority, suffered a nervous breakdown, as Israel faced a surprise attack by the Egyptian and Syrian armies. Senior officials, headed by Minister of Defense Moshe Dayan, devised wild and desperate ideas, among them the use of nuclear weapons. This 4-part series highlights the war’s dramatic events while taking  us down a historical path of failed diplomacy and missed exit points, leaving us to wonder how the superpowers, jolted out of their complacency, were driven to the edge of Armageddon.
