Moshe Dayan, soldier and statesman who led Israel to dramatic victories over its Arab neighbours and became a symbol of security to his countrymen. Dayan’s autobiography, The Story of My Life, was published in 1976. Dayan was born on Israel’s first kibbutz and was raised on the country’s first successful cooperative farm settlement (moshav), Nahalal. After Dayan’s death, controversy arose over his extensive private collection of antiquities, part of which he had accumulated through unauthorized and unscientific digs. The collection was eventually sold by his second wife to the Israel Museum.

"Moshe Dayan" is the autobiography of a soldier who never forgot his roots as a farmer, a loner who rose to the highest echelons of government. Here he describes his kibbutz childhood, his involvement in the Jewish underground, the battles he fought as the head of a commando unit in the War of Independence, his experiences as chief of staff and mastermind of the 1956 Sinai Campaign, and his tenure as Minister of Defence during the Six Day and Yom Kippur wars. One of the greatest generals in modern history, Dayan was also a man who hated the suffering that war brings, and who loved the land of Israel more than himself. He writes of his heroes, friends and enemies, providing candid portraits of Kissinger, Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir and other notables. This is a story of a brilliant soldier who grew up to be one of the most respected and heroic figures in the Middle East.

Superb look at the history of Israel through the eyes of one of the pivotal figures from the critical years of 1947-1974. Anyone wanting an understanding of how modern Israel rose from and through those formative events (the War of Independence, the Sinai Crisis, the 6-Day War and Yom Kippur) woud be well-served by Dayan's book. I still remember as a 12-year old in America in 1967 the photos of the great Moshe Dayan in Time and Life magazines after the 6-Day War and the youthful amazement at events I had little to no grasp of. This is not a highly introspective work, although you will learn much of his thoughts and motivations. Perhaps the external events were more than enough to explain. The picture that emerges of Dayan is of a man with great humanity and with sympathy and respect for his Arab opponents. I suppose that some biographies may call him arrogant or something but this is the work of a man with humility as well. Highly recommended for the student of Israeli and Middle East history and a period that will be looked back on as the birth of the nation of Israel.

I ordered and read Moshe Dayan's autobiography after the recent activities of the IDF. I was curious to get an idea of alternative solutions that could have been implemented by the man himself.

It was fascinating to extrapolate Dayan's preferred methods of military engagement to the recent engagement. He wrote how he and David Ben-Gurion got along well and supported and respected each other; except Dayan did not prefer to "steamroller" his troops directly at the enemy front, but to risk a dash around to the rear of the enemy, cutting them off from their reinforcements and second line of defense; thus splitting the enemy's communication lines and disrupting any coordinated plan they had. I think he was successful with this tactic many times since 1948. The book is a captivating read, chronicling the same lame political dithering and bickering as seen today - but with unimaginably violent, gut-wrenching accounts of battle which would more than compare to Omaha Beach in the movie "Saving Private Ryan." I think that Moshe Dayan experienced "Omaha Beaches" with personal integrity, valour and a caring heart, first hand, many times, for 25 years! Little did we know.

Moshe Dayan might be considered one of the traditionalist soldier of the twentieth century. One must read how he singl handedly with a couple of others had occupied Dar Tarif. He was not Bias I would say in describing the Bravery of the Jordanians either. The thing one should look at is the wording and naming of the groups opposing Israel. In the beginning they were Arabs and then it developed as Palestinians? Very odd how things change, Moshe Dayan treated the Arabs as Arabs and never as separate nations, it shows how the Arabs have given themselves that division.

Well done.

Moshe Dayan is a great autobiography.

I loved reading about this person's life. the history i learned about Israel in the early 1900s through his life was incredible. Moshe Dayan made a great mental picture of what it was like to grow up in Israel through the times when the land wasnt a nation in WW2 through its founding and 5 more middle eastern wars. Moshe dayan wrote a great biography of his life and his country. I keep this book as a memento of the history of Israel.
