Snapshot - A Book Review

Snapshot: The IDF as Never Seen Before
By Yoav Limor and Ziv Korn
Hard Cover, 240 pages
Gefen Publishing House, 2018
Reviewed by Morton Leibowitz

We all love and are exceedingly proud of ZAHAL. We should be. They are our children and grandchildren. For just that reason, it is a pleasure to recommend the recently published volume entitled Snapshot: The IDF as Never Seen Before by Yoav Limor and Ziv Korn. With a publication date of 2018, it is truly as up-to-date as can be. The combination of the very lucid and sometimes critical text of Limor with the amazing photographs of Korn provide a graphic and moving image of Zahal.

The sections testify to the fact that the authors deal with the current issues in a clear and effective manner. There are sections on:The Shadow War, The Special Forces Unit, Women in the Military, Religion and the Military and other current and fascinating topics. As an experienced military correspondent and a photographer, they had the full cooperation of Zahal and they have produced an exciting and attractive volume.

I recommend this book for either your own coffee table or as a beautiful gift for friends both in Israel and abroad.
