Covers the Yom Kippur War from start to finish concentrating on both the Syrian and Egyptian fronts. Does not cover one engagement primarily, other than a slight focus on the Battle of Chinese Farm near the Suez Canal. The Palestinian struggle for statehood is heavily emphasized, although neither Egypt, Syria, or the other members of the Arab League were officially concerned with the Palestinian cause at the time. The episode is filmed in the Negev Desert in Southern Israel since neither Egypt or Syria gave permission to film in their territories. Dan Snow learns how to operate an anti-tank missile.
This is an excellent episode – very informative and easy to watch of the Yom Kippur Arab Israeli war in 1973
