On this edition of By the Book, sponsored by Koren Publishers, Nachum Segal interviewed Asael Lubotzky about his book, “From the Wilderness and Lebanon: An Israeli Soldier’s Story of War and Recovery.”
From the Koren website:
Asael Lubotzky was a young IDF commander during the Second Lebanon War. Leading his troops into combat, maneuvering through the deadly urban warfare of Southern Lebanon, Lubotzky was hit by a missile, irreversibly damaging both his legs.
In this harrowing memoir, Lubotzky recounts the story of the two great battles of his life. The first, against Hamas and Hezbollah, when he was forced to contend with the horrors of war, the fears of his soldiers, the loss of his comrades, and the moral dilemmas of the battlefield. And the second, far more difficult one, to recover from his injuries, learn to walk again, and return to life.
