The content is great and I truly wish I could listen to it. After 107 audio books, I have heard a reasonable share of mediocre narrations, but this mouth-breather is untenable. I have been able to listen to other books that listeners have given bad reviews to the narrator, but this recording is horrible.
I truly enjoyed the historical overview leading up to this event, including the details on key players. The play-by-play accounting of the period immediately prior to and during this event was very insightful. The author, in my opinion, presented the facts and didn't show support for any particular side, which I greatly appreciate. I didn't realize how fortunate Israel was that their opposition was not united. The outcome could have been very different. Likewise, I was unfamiliar with the "Big Lie."
It increased my understanding of the struggle of both sides, and how important an active and strong foreign policy is to reduce military action. I was surprised to learn of key opportunities to reduce the loss of life, which were missed simply for a lack of understanding of the urgency of communications.
