Ariel Sharon: a life in pictures

Жизнь Ариэля Шарона в фотографиях. (с повторами)




Maj-Gen. ('Aluf') Ariel Sharon, 1973. A common sight for Sharon during the 1973 Yom Kippur War - squatting on the desert sand and planning movements, even sleeping outside on the sand along with other generals of the IDF.






Unit 101: the strength is in the smile

'Arik' Sharon flanked by men of "Unit 101" and Moshe Dayan, then Chief of Operations on the General Staff. "Unit 101" was made up of volunteers, not necessarily 'the best' soldiers in the army, but motivated men trained for parachute, commando and anti-terror operations. It existed between 1953-56, numbered about 50 men and earned a tough reputation.

Ох-хохо. Хорош он был.

Жалеет теперь наверное.

Я его тоже всегда уважал, хотя и не всегда понимал в последние годы.

А она просто не узнала. Молодая солдатка на рынке Маханей-Ехуда, приехала на побывку, скупается перед шабатом, торопится. А тут какой-то толстый дядька ей хочет руку пожать. А вокруг толпа орёт "Арик Мелех Исраэль". Вот она и растерялась. Руку за спину спрятала. Мало ли кто это.
Это было уже когда первая война в Ливане заканчивалась. Он уже ушёл тогда.
