1973: The First Nuclear War

Crucial Air Battles of the October 1973 Arab-Israeli War

ISBN : 9781911628712

Helion & Company via Casemate UK




There have been many books about the 1973 war between the Arab forces and Israel. The general wisdom in these is that air power did not play a major role with a strong air defence deployment by the Arab forces causing heavy losses to the Israeli Air Force. The IAF though did fly heavy air strikes on the Port Said area which were not in direct support of their ground forces. The actual reason for theses remains unclear, however It is now suggested that these were as a direct result of US intelligence suggest that the only Egyptian unit equipped with the SS-1 Scud Missile was based in this area, and the possibility of deployments of Soviet nuclear warheads at this time.  




The book looks at the Israeli attempts to prevent the deployment of these missiles, whether or not armed with nuclear warheads in the area. This volume is A4 soft back in format and 88 pages. There are over 100 photographs throughout with 12 maps, and 18 colour profiles.





This book should provide readers with a more upto date look at the early stages of the Gulf War
