Product description

Review

For students of warfare, Middle East enthusiasts or anyone inspired by stories of redemption after a fall from grace, Defensive Shield is well worth reading. --Defense News

Hirsch gives us a detailed account of the exhaustive training and commitment involved in belonging to the Israel Defense Forces, as well as his intense loyalty to his country and family. --Lynn L. Clark, author of The Home Child

Product Description

Israel Defense Force Brigadier General Gal Hirsch has taken part in all of Israel’s military confrontations since 1982, leaving a unique signature on a wide scope of strategic thinking owing to his deep understanding of operational art and military planning.



In 2009, Hirsch’s autobiographical book in Hebrew, War Story, Love Story, was published and instantly appeared on the Israeli bestseller list where it stayed for many months. The description of his own personal journey offers deep, open-minded, and critical insights into the most significant milestones in Israel’s defense in the past 30 years, in which he played a key role.

This new, revised, and reconceived English edition of the book offers international readers a comprehensive, one-of-a-kind, contextual description of Israeli national defense developments, serving as a valuable tool for understanding contemporary security challenges in the Middle East.

The book has been praised as a lesson in leadership, bravery, and endurance. It is a remarkable testimony to the bond between the Jewish people and its Bible and land.
