Motti knows war is coming to Israel, a tiny country only nineteen years old and surrounded by enemies. Motti's older brother is a hero, but through the six days of the Six-Day War Motti discovers other heroes in surprising places.
Motti knows that war is coming. Israel is only nineteen years old—the same age as Motti's brave older brother, Gideon—and the tiny country is surrounded by enemies. It's only a matter of time before Egypt, Jordan and Syria attack. Motti wishes he could join the Israeli army like Gideon and be a hero. But when his best friend's family flees the country and his brother goes off to fight, Motti realizes this war isn't a game. His family is in danger, and Israel's very survival is at stake.
