(RABIN, Yitzhak) (REAGAN, Ronald) Bar-On, Mordechai, Col., editor. Israel Defence Forces. The Six Day War 5.6.67… 10.6.67. Israel: Israel Defence Forces, and the Publications Division of the Ministry of Defence, 1968. Large quarto (10-3/4 by 12 inches), original brown paper boards, graphic endpapers, original dust jacket. Housed in a custom clamshell box.
First edition of a seminal early record of the 1967 Six Day War, an exceptional presentation/
association copy inscribed on the second page of text, shortly after publication, by then General Rabin to Ronald Reagan as Governor of California. Rabin, who became Israel’s Fifth Prime Minister, won the Nobel Peace Prize with Shimon Peres and Yasser Arafat one year before his assassination, and Reagan became America’s 40th President. This authoritative work, containing text by both Rabin and Moshe Dayan, features 12 full-page maps with color-outlined overlays and is profusely illustrated with hundreds of photogravures, many full page (15 in color), including photographs by noted photographers Cornell Capa and Don McCullin.
This highly memorable presentation/association copy of Israel Defence Forces is inscribed by Yitzhak Rabin soon after publication to Ronald Reagan, America’s 40th President, who was then Governor of California. As General, Rabin led Israel to victory in the 1967 Six Day War and became Israel’s fifth Prime Minister. In 1994 Rabin won the Nobel Peace Prize with Shimon Peres and Yasser Arafat, the same year he was awarded the Ronald Reagan Freedom Award, and only one year before his tragic assassination. In a prefatory essay to this important work, Moshe Dayan, as Israel’s Minister of Defence, writes: “During those Six Days, the Israel Defence Forces fought a coordinated campaign without let-up in desert and on mountain, in the air and on the sea, in night and day actions, with amour and infantry, from the walls of Jerusalem to Mount Hermon in the north and to Sharm e-Sheikh in the south.” In his own introduction Rabin pays further tribute to hard-fought struggle, adding: “most important of all was the spirit of the individual fighting man ready to risk his life at all times. This book tells the story of the battles… But it is dedicated to the entire nation of Israel, who stood with steadiness and courage behind their defenders.” With prefatory essay by Moshe Dayan and introduction by Rabin. Text by Nathan Shaham.
