There were moments in Ariel Sharon's astonishingly successful military career when he had pulled victory from the jaws of defeat. But he has also been blasted for actions that have led to the deaths of civilians. Even so, Sharon overcame his opposition and adversity to become Israel's prime minister in 2001, at age 72, making him one of the oldest world leaders. Ariel Sharon is an in-depth biography of this controversial man, whose massive stroke and subsequent coma in January 2006 further complicated the already precarious scenario in the Middle East.
