In this autobiography, former Prime Minister of Israel Ariel Sharon tells his captivating story with frankness, power, intelligence, and a brilliant gift for detail.
Prime Minister of Israel from March 2001 to April 2006, Ariel Sharon was a dynamic and controversial leader. A hero in Israel's wars, perhaps the most daring and successful commander in Israel's extraordinary military history, Sharon has always been a warrior, whether the enemies were hostile Arab nations, terrorists, Time magazine, or rival politicians.
The public man is well known—aggressive in battle, hardline in politics—but the private man has always been obscured by Sharon's dazzling career and powerful personality.
In this compelling and dramatic autobiography, the real Sharon appears for the first time: a complex man, a loving father, a figure of courage and compassion. A warrior who commands the respect and love of his troops, a visionary, and an uncompromising, ruthless pragmatist, Sharon is as outspoken as his friends—and enemies—would expect him to be.
