  • Though it receives little public fanfare, war prevention is the IDF’s number-one goal. If war cannot be prevented, the object is to win so quickly and decisively that the enemy will be unable to launch another war for many years to come.

                              I am currently reading Gal Hirsch's autobiography, Defensive Shield, which provides some interesting insight into the special forces.

                              I am, without exaggeration, a voracious reader of literature on the IDF.

                              One of the very best books I have ever read is Hirsch's book Defensive Shield .

                              There is a lot of information on the IDF, the good and bad.

                              Hirsh does a very impressive job describing LIC / asymmetrical / counter-insurgency at both the theoretical and operational level.

                              His description of the IDF prior to the Second Lebanon War, and discussion of the 91st Division during the war is critical reading for anyone who thinks the IDF performed poorly.

                              I suspect that history will prove the war to be an IDF success. Hirsh writes very positively of the performance of his forces. Of course, this is to be expected as he was the Division Commander.

                              Nevertheless, the facts indicates this to be the case as 1) he was a) exonerated and commended by the Winograd Commission, & b) returned to IDF service, and 2) the border has been quite for almost 12 years.

                              I suppose a bit of a disclaimer, while I never met him personally, I did participate in some of the events he describes in the late 80's (which is interesting to see in print).
