Slaves of the Sword – Ariel Sharon (FHF)


Biography of Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, a military leader turned right wing politician. Examining his war record and governing strategies, this film forms one section of three-part series on hawkish Israeli soldier/politician: Moshe Dayan, Yitzhak Rabin and Ariel Sharon, three men who shaped the destiny of the entire Middle East. Three generals, men of fast deeds, with little patience for words. They became politicians and found themselves at the crossroads of history. Did they ever stop being slaves of the sword? Did they truly become and act as statesmen?

  • Educational Media Reviews Online
