The Second Lebanon War, as the Israeli Parliament decided in March 2007 to officially name the 12 July-14 August 2006 conflict between Hizbollah and Israel, has attracted an impressive body of academic literature. Among the aspects of the war that have been explored so far are the following: causes of the failures of the Israel Defence Forces (IDF), 1 operational aspects, 2 Hizbollah’s method of making war, 3 its short-range rocket arsenal as a new type of challenge for the Israeli Air Force (IAF), 4 Israel’s intelligence during the war, 5 the war as a test of Israel’s deterrence capability, 6 and the implications of this conflict for US military strategy.7 In addition, a number of Israeli students used the war in order to shed light on the way democracies fight an asymmetric conflict, 8 the way a civil society functions during a military conflict, 9 and civil-military relations in Israel.10.
