"Mitla Pass - Sinai - In a modern version of Little David slaying the mighty Goliath, the spectacular victory of Israel over the Arab forces stirred the wonderment of the whole world. Locked in that desperate fight to control the Sinai, Ross Ferrar, a volunteer in the Israeli paratroop corps, struggles not only against the harsh reality of desert warfare but also his own inner torment over a star-crossed love affair. This is a vibrant portrait of a new nation in an old land, and a saga of battle, new in its techniques, but ancient in its test of men and its cruel consorting with chance. "
