Gilad  Sharon

In Israel, soldier-politician Ariel Sharon is a legend. From his youthful military exploits in the 1948 War of Independence to his leadership during the Six-Day and Yom Kippur wars, to his transition to statesman and politician, Sharon has become an icon.

In 2001 Sharon became Israel’s eleventh Prime Minister, but was felled by a stroke in early 2006 that has left him in a persistent vegetative state.

Now his youngest son, Gilad Sharon, gives us an unprecedented look inside his father’s life and career. In his book “Sharon: The Life of a Leader,” he draws from never before seen documents and diaries to pull back the curtain.
