"Chris McNab uses first person accounts to bring the reader into the fray. The section on Operation Gazelle, the Israeli counter-offensive, dives deep into the most intense clash of the war between the M60 MBT and the AT-3 Sagger. This intensity is supported by a two page painting from Johnny Shumate." - IPMS / USA
"This volume in the series really does show what can be done with this format with the right subject matter and an author who can combine the actual combat actions with comprehensive and relevant background information to provide a comprehensive picture of why the duel is important in the larger sense." - AMPS
