The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) is a renowned fighting force. It has defended a young vulnerable country from repeated attacks. In the process, it has produced great generals and statesmen.

Set in the late 1970s, at a time when many Western armies viewed the IDF as a heroic and idealistic force, Bullets to Bandages explores the daily life inside the Israel Defense Forces. These are true stories that center on the experiences of four Israeli soldiers and provide the reader with an intimate view of life in the Israeli army, the meaning of army friendships, and their own coming-of-age.
