Into the Valley of Death

Generations of soldiers have been taught about the legendary self-sacrifice of the jeep driver Yehuda Kan Dror, in the Sinai Campaign of 1956. For 50 years, his friend Benny Broida lived with the true story, which has now come out: No one volunteered for the death patrol in the Mitla Pass in 1956, he says − not the officers on the scene and not Kan Dror, who was ordered to go and then left in the field, seriously wounded.
