Ralph Peters. on the ground with the IDF


In a new piece, SOLDIERS' GRIT IN 'ORGANIZED MESS' OF WAR the one and only Ralph Peters gives us a portrait of the IDF in action.

Strong stuff, from a great writer.

from the article:
it wasn't hard to figure out who would triumph in the end.

corrected to read properly:
it wasn't hard to figure out who MUST triumph in the end.

.......but we don't need to SEE the battlefield to determine that now do we?
i especially liked the authors written description of the visual contrast in landscapes on either side of the border.
