is quite simply the best book about modern Israel I have ever read."--Jonathan Rosen, author of Joy Comes in the Morning.
"[Halevi] tracks the...lives of seven of the Brigade 55 members.... [He] succeeds in his broader goal of linking these men and their families to Israel's history during the past five decades.
