An enlightening read
My exposure to Prime Minister Sharon was limited by his portrayal in the media in America and Europe as a tyrant and a butcher. As an American Jew, the media portrayal did not meet with what I heard from Israeli friends and family. I was left wanting to know more about PM Sharon and his influence on the Jewish homeland. Gilad hit it out of the park!
By the time I put the book down, I grew to see PM Sharon as a grandfatherly figure looking after his people's homeland with resolute determination. Gilad relates his father's prowess on the battle field to his command of the diplomatic field and shows why Arik Sharon will go down as one of the greatest protectors of Israel and the Jewish people. By the end of the book, you're left wondering what could have been in a third Sharon term...the hope of a lasting peace, mass return from the diaspora, and more.
