Foxbats over Dimona : the Soviets' nuclear gamble in the Six-Day War by Isabella Ginor( )

14 editions published between 2007 and 2008 in English and held by 1,879 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fearing an imminent invasion, Israel launched a preemptive air attack on Egypt in June 1967 and it achieved such staggering devastation that in just six days the war was won and the future of the Middle East was forever changed. But have our assumptions about the genesis of the Six-Day War been misguided? What was the involvement of the Soviet Union? Were the Israelis planning to use nuclear weapons? Were the Soviets? This book provides an account that is startlingly different from all previous histories of the Six-Day War. Award-winning Israeli journalists Isabella Ginor and Gideon Remez investigate newly available documents and testimonies from the former Soviet Union, cross-check them extensively against Israeli and Western sources, and arrive at fresh and frightening conclusions. Filled with astonishing new information about this crucial week in history, the book paints a disturbing picture of Cold War aggression, deception, and calculated willingness to precipitate a global crisis

The Soviet-Israeli War, 1969-1973 : the USSR's military intervention in the Egyptian-Israeli conflict by Isabella Ginor( Book )

2 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Russia's forceful re-entry into the Middle East highlights the topicality of this groundbreaking study, which confirms the USSR's role in shaping Middle Eastern and global history. This book covers the high point of the USSR's direct military involvement in the Egyptian-Israeli conflict. The head-on clash between US-armed Israeli forces and some 50,000 Soviet servicemen with state-of-the-art weaponry turned the Middle East into the hottest front of the Cold War. The Soviets' success in this war of attrition paved the way for their planning and support of Egypt's cross-canal offensive in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. Ginor and Remez challenge a series of long-accepted notions as to the scope, timeline and character of the Soviet intervention and overturn the conventional view that US-Moscow détente led to a curtailment of Egyptian ambitions to capture the land it lost to Israel in 1967. Between this analytical rethink and the introduction of an entirely new genre of sources -- memoirs and other publications by Soviet veterans themselves -- The Soviet-Israeli War paves the way for scholars to revisit this pivotal moment in world history. -- Provided by publisher
The Middle Eastern Test of Détente : the Direct Role of the USSR in the Yom Kippur War, 1973 by Isabella Ginor( )

Israel's Best Spy—or a Master Double Agent? New light from the Soviet angle on the mystery of Ashraf Marwan( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

ABSTRACT: Research into the Soviet military intervention in the Egyptian-Israeli conflict of 1967–1973 has produced new evidence about the activity of Ashraf Marwan, an Egyptian official and son-in-law of President Gamal Abdel Nasser. His input related to the Soviet aspect tends to support the claim, in the continuing controversy in Israel about Marwan, that he served Egyptian interests—and, while they coincided—Soviet interests, rather than becoming a genuine Israeli informant. His disinformation helped to establish erroneous notions about the Soviet role and thus to cause Israeli unpreparedness for the 1973 Yom Kippur War
Foxbats over Dimona : the Soviets' nuclear gamble in the Six-Day War by Isabella Ginor( Recording )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

[This book] shows that the Six-Day War was the result of a joint Soviet-Arab gambit to provoke Israel into a preemptive attack. [In the book], the authors reveal how the Soviets received a secret Israeli message indicating that Israel, despite its official ambiguity, was about to acquire nuclear weapons. Determined to destroy Israel's nuclear program before it could produce an atomic bomb, the Soviets then began preparing for war - well before Moscow accused Israel of offensive intent, the overt trigger of the crisis. [The authors] detail how the Soviet-Arab onslaught was to be unleashed once Israel had been drawn into action and was branded as the aggressor. The Soviets had submarine-based nuclear missiles poised for use against Israel in case it already possessed and tried to use an atomic device, and the USSR prepared and actually began a marine landing on Israel's shores backed by strategic bombers and fighter squadrons. They sent their most advanced, still-secret aircraft, the MiG-25 Foxbat, on provocative stories over Israel's Dimona nuclear complex to prepare the planned attack on it, and to scare Israel into making the first strike. It was only the unpredicted devastation of Israel's response that narrowly thwarted the Soviet design.-Dust jacket
