Abstract

This analysis of autobiographies by three Israeli military and political leaders--Yigal Allon, Moshe Dayan, and Yitzhak Rabin--explores how the three men's status as national icons affected their life writing, and how the different ways in which they negotiated a compromise between the iconicity attributed to them in their youth and their identities as mature human beings affected some of their political attitudes, especially toward Arab-Israeli coexistence.
