Short Synopsis
The Weapon Wizards shows how this tiny nation of eight million learned to adapt to the changes in warfare and in the defense industry and become the new prototype of a twenty-first century superpower, not in size, but rather in innovation and efficiency—and as a result of its long war experience.

Full Synopsis
From drones to satellites, missile defense systems to cyber warfare, Israel is leading the world when it comes to new technology being deployed on the modern battlefield. The Weapon Wizards shows how this tiny nation of eight million learned to adapt to the changes in warfare and in the defense industry and become the new prototype of a twenty-first century superpower, not in size, but rather in innovation and efficiency—and as a result of its long war experience.

Sitting on the front lines of how wars are fought in the twenty-first century, Israel has developed in its arms trade new weapons and retrofitted old ones so they remain effective, relevant, and deadly on a constantly-changing battlefield. While other countries begin to prepare for these challenges, they are looking to Israel—and specifically its weapons—for guidance. Israel is, in effect, a laboratory for the rest of the world.

How did Israel do it? And what are the military and geopolitical implications of these developments? These are some of the key questions Yaakov Katz and Amir Bohbot address. Drawing on a vast amount of research, and unparalleled access to the Israeli defense establishment, this book is a report directly from the front lines.

"An enlightening look into one of the less-familiar corners of the modern military world." ---Kirkus

"A lively account of Israel's evolving military prowess . . . if The Weapon Wizards were a novel, it would be one written by Horatio Alger; if it were a biblical allegory, it would be the story of David and Goliath." ---New York Times

"The authors have skillfully conveyed a key component of the dynamic innovation culture that has made the Jewish state one of the most important entrepreneurial and technology-driven economies in the world." ---Wall Street Journal

"Fascinating . . . [Katz and Bohbot] present an intriguing and engrossing account of Israel's defense capabilities development." ---The American Thinker
