The Israeli Air Force has seen involvement in some of the most dramatic and important conflicts of post–World War II history. In action during the Suez crisis, decisive during the Six-Day War, and on call during the Gulf War, the Israeli Air Force continues to see action today in current conflicts. This illustrated narrative sets recent events in historical context, and covers these key operations with a range of impressive color photographs, many of which have never been published before.
Controversial current conflicts between Israel and Iran make the publication of this record particularly relevant, offering the history of these ongoing disputes and the conflicts that prefigured them. Included are images of iconic relics such as the historic Mirage and Skyhawk, as well as photographs of modern craft such as F-15s and F-16s. This library of images work to paint an engaging history of this Force, a presence in the skies for more than sixty-five years.
