In 1967, soon after the end of the Six Day War, a magazine named Shdemot decided to publish a collection of interviews with kibbutznik veterans of the war. They put up notices in kibbutz dining halls and asked for contributions. “To the shock of the young editors, the book sold nearly 100,000 copies, a massive best-seller.”

The soldiers’ views were introspective.
