On this week’s History of Israel Explained, things get serious with the outbreak of the Yom Kippur War. Just six years after the stunning victory of the Six-Day War, the 1973 war meant near disaster for Israel. Unlike in 1967, when Israel could do no wrong, in 1973, the country was caught off guard (sort of) and unprepared. As a result, Israel faced massive casualties and it’s very existence was called into question. So how did this happen? Why didn’t Prime Minister Golda Meir manage to pull off the same kind of preemptive tactics as in ‘67, who was to blame for the mess, how desperate did Moshe Dayan become, and just how bad did things get for Israel? Watch the first part of our look at the difficult days of the Yom Kippur War to find out and make sure to keep watching next week to see how events unfolded.
