Director Yariv Mozer (Ben-Gurion Epilogue, The Devil's Confession: The Lost Eichmann Tapes) challenges the prevailing myths surrounding Golda Meir’s handling of the Yom Kippur war, offering a more nuanced analysis of one of Israel’s most polarizing leaders. Documents that were declassified fifty years after the war reveal that, in contrast to her cabinet’s inadequacies, Meir herself managed the war assertively. Efforts to gain American support were vital both for winning the war and paving the way for a peace treaty with Egypt. Expert commentary and archival footage validate this reassessment of Meir’s leadership during the war. In light of current challenges, Mozer’s film is particularly relevant.
