'Beginning with new revelations about the Six-Day War, Betser catalogues the successes - the kidnapping of five Syrian generals, and the raid on Entebbe, the execution of Black September's top three commanders, alongside the harsh realities surrounding a quarter of a century of counter-terrorist war. Many of Betser's closest companions died in combat, while Betser himself was terribly wounded in an abortive raid on the PLO in Karameh in 1968.
Secret Soldier is the story of a brilliant tactician and a supremely brave commando. But Muki Betser's message reverberates far beyond the field of battle. His volatile and riveting autobiography highlights the daunting crises and dilemmas faced by Israel in its fight for nationhood and for peace.'
