Captain Gadi Golan and Captain David Averbukh are two reserve fighter squadron helicopter pilots in two different bases of the IAF. Both men are high quality, impressive and charismatic, tall and handsome in the 27th year of their lives and did their service during the War of Attrition on the Suez Canal and fighting terrorists in Lebanon. Gadi and David do not know each other and have never met, but their paths, their identities, and their fates are about to intersect in a chain of breathtaking events.
David is an orphan who immigrated to Israel alone at the age of 16, and after his military service he returns to the United States, to study law in Los Angeles. Twice a year he arrives in Israel to serve his army duty.
Gadi, "tsabar", a symbol of the beautiful Israel, is about to finish his studies at the Technion in Haifa to become an aeronautical engineer.
Sigal Givat Haim, beautiful and energetic, from Kibbutz, who just turned 24, is Gadi's great love, his girlfriend for two years and carrying their fruit of love.
On October 6, at 14:00, the earth trembles. Gadi and David are summoned to the air force base in Tel Nof, assigned to the same helicopter, and going out to defend the homeland from the enormous power of the Egyptian army that has crossed the Suez Canal and invaded the Sinai Peninsula. Only one of them comes back from hell, mortally wounded, unconscious, and suffering from shell shock, all the memories erased from his mind. When he wakes up in a US medical center, rehabilitated and coming back to life, it remains a mystery - who is he?
Atalia was born in Israel and grew up to be a very beautiful girl, good looking and healthy, but she is steeped in heartbreak, as she was determined to follow in her father Gadi's footsteps. Their lives are full of the events of the characters' stories and the wonderful love story of Gadi and Sigal woven throughout the book. The plot moves in the background, as there is always the question: Which of the two men returned from the war, David or Gadi?
Match is a fascinating love story, overwhelming and exciting, beginning back on the blood-soaked sand dunes of the Sinai Peninsula, the Yom Kippur War in 1973, and ending in late 2014, along the golden sands of Florida. Take a deep breath; you'll need it.
The book was written by Moshe Gal (Glasberg). Moshe was born in Tel Aviv and worked in many different fields as an engineer, a producer of musicals, an advertising executive, a flight attendant, a model, and a tourist guide before he devoted himself to writing. He is a fighter and an Israeli patriot, a disabled veteran wounded and shell shocked after physically participating in four of Israel's wars.
The book is based on his personal life experience as well as rare and rich and exciting events in his best imagination.
