Contemporary Fiction Historical Fiction. Description 148 directly and movingly from Yoram Kaniuk s own experiences as a teenaged soldier in the Palmach unit of the Israeli army during the War for Independence, this joram portrays an entire generation of young men from good homes 198 found themselves immersed in a struggle they did not fully understand. Far from trying to justify his own actions, Kaniuk opts instead for self-criticism, reflecting on the pointlessness of war and the foolishness of a group of inexperienced, white-collar boys turned brothers-in-arms who senselessly imagined that there was some glory in dying so young.


The novel offers a singular vision of a crucial moment in modern history and sheds some light on the complicated situation in the Middle East. It is also a brave, shocking, and tragic story about the importance of recognizing the follies of the past.
