The fourth Middle East war, called the Yom Kippur War by the Israelis, was nicknamed "Operation Spark" by the Arabs. It sparked off a crisis in détente. The eclipse of Western Europe. A world energy shortage. The first face-to-face peace negotiations between Arab and Israeli. And opened a new phase in the struggle for the Middle East. Laqueur was born in Breslau, Lower Silesia, Prussia (modern Wrocław, Poland), into a Jewish family. In 1938, he left Germany for the British Mandate of Palestine.
