Egypt sent troops and equipment across the Suez at the Bar Lev Line and the Syrians advanced through the rugged Golan Heights. Few military analysts thought that either country could succeed in a confrontation with Israel, considered a mini super power and famous for swift and devastating victories in war. But this did not happen. Israel instead found itself fighting for survival on two fronts.”
