Peter and Dan Snow: 20th Century Battlefields - Series 1 - 1973 Middle East

Peter and Dan Snow unravel the complex history of conflict in the Middle East. Known in the West as the Yom Kippur War, the fighting that broke out in 1973 was the biggest military clash between Arabic nations and Israel. State-of-the-art graphics are used to illustrate how the Egyptians stunned the Israelis in their surprise attack whilst Dan, with the help of the British Royal Marines, experiences how small teams of Egyptian foot-soldiers used the latest technology to stop the Israel tanks in their tracks.
