Mini Series 60 min x 4
During the October War of 1973 Israel’s military and political Leadership, so sure 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 an 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.
