Arrow, 2001 - Israel-Arab War, 1967 - 230 pages
0 Reviews
Two deadly enemies - the young Arab rebel and the Jewish runaway - meet in a remote valley to begin a quest. Both have been taught since infancy to hate; to attack for self-defence. But something incredible is happening to them, something that not even the fierce shelling of the Six-Day War can intrude upon. For they are on a fantastic mission, a mission both believe has been set for them by God.
