Israel’s military success over many decades has long fascinated observers. Israel and the early Zionist movement had to focus on this area out of necessity, but today defense industries have become one of the key drivers of Israeli economic activity. Israel has an outsized presence and influence on the cutting-edge technologies found on the modern battlefield.

In The Weapon Wizards: How Israel Became a High-Tech Military Superpower, Yaakov Katz and Amir Bohbot, two of Israel’s veteran defense reporters, take an inside look at the key elements of this success and the reasons behind it.
