theoretical framework for the analysis.
Before the analysis there is going to be multiple segments providing both empirical
background and a description of the theoretical framework. Comparative analysis will be
used to perform the analysis.
The purpose of the essay is to answer two questions:
● In what way was surprise and deception used during the Six-Day War and the Yom
Kippur War?
● What similarities and differences can be found in the implementation of surprise and
deception during the Six-Day War and the Yom Kippur War? (Less)
