(4 out of 5 stars)
This DVD provides a quick, concise and nicely illustrated survey of the "6 Day War"  and the "Yom Kipper War"  via maps, front-line video, and excellent narration. This DVD made me feel, very much, like I was being briefed about these two conflicts, and the issues concerning them in a manner that prepared me to discuss them intelligently. Interviews and speeches made by historic figures abound but, at 35 minutes each, they were over too soon.
SPECIFICALLY: [for example]
At the onset of the Yom Kipper War, we see how a missle screen was put together by the Egyptians, followed by the destruction of a 60 foot barrier on the Suez by water cannons. Tank hunting squads are sent over the Suez, and promptly set up tank traps using remote controlled missles awaiting the Israeli armored response. We see it, but we understand why it happens on a tactical level.
Essentially, that is a sample of how the two wars were depicted and I liked it. Enough focused information is presented, in each of the two segments, to give one a clear enough survey of the conflict to engage in an intelligent "classroom discussion".
ABOUT THE DVD:
Very good transfer of some very old footages from the front line. No features to speak of."
