“I am looking forward to this book tour in the United States and delighted my book is part of the Jewish Lives Biography Series published by Yale University Press" explained Bar-On. "My new biography of Moshe Dayan highlights the complexities of the hero who was both a brilliant military leader and a man who despite common perceptions...was not the sabra par excellence but a complex personality with an inquisitive mind.”
