Good factual account with personal anecdotes as seen from the Israeli s:

Golan Heights, also called Golan Plateau, Arabic Al-Jawlān, Hebrew Ramat Ha-Golan or Ha-Golan, hilly area overlooking the upper Jordan River valley on the west. The area was part of extreme southwestern Syria until , when it came under Israeli military occupation, and in December Israel unilaterally annexed the part of the Golan it held. The Valley of Tears (Hebrew: עֵמֶק הַבָּכָא, Emek HaBakha) is the name given to an area in the Golan Heights after it became the site of a major battle in the Yom Kippur War, known as the Valley (or Vale) of Tears Battle, which was fought between the 6th and 9th of gh massively outnumbered, the Israeli forces managed to hold their positions and on the fourth day.

This book demonstrates that the strategic importance of the Golan Heights lies in three spheres: defense, deterrence, and bargaining asset. It examines security arrangements that are a crucial element for Israel's security and for the prevention of war with Syria during the transition period. I finished Book 1 and immediately picked up Book 2. After a brief summary of Book 1, Book 2 continues to build on the foundation established by Book 1. I thought Book 1 was great, yet Books 2, 3 and 4 were even better, as life lessons continue to unfold in a refreshing, uplifting manner. Golan (Hebrew: גּולן; Arabic: جولان ‎ Gōlān or Jōlān) is the name of a biblical town later known from the works of Josephus (first century CE) and Eusebius (Onomasticon, early 4th century CE). Archaeologists localize the biblical city of Golan at Sahm el-Jaulān, a Syrian village east of Wadi ar-Ruqqad in the Daraa Governorate, where early Byzantine ruins were found. The United States recognized the Golan Heights as part of Israel through a presidential proclamation signed by U.S. president Donald Trump on Ma The directive made the United States the first country, other than Israel, to recognize Israeli rather than Syrian sovereignty over the Golan Heights region. The Golan Heights are widely viewed as Syrian territory under Israeli military.
