Note: 
Through the experiences of four Israeli teens who are about to enter either the military or alternative service, readers are introduced to the IDF. A history of the defense forces is given, from pioneer days to the founding of the state; many of the IDF's most important battles, missions, and accomplishments are mentioned; and the IDF's technology and intelligence systems are described. The coverage is cursory but the tone is up-beat and readers who are curious about the IDF will get a taste of what it is like. Illustrated with clear photographs; no index.
