On this episode of the "Once and Future Authors" Podcast, we are joined by Max Levin, Author and American-born Israeli soldier. Here to discuss his novel "Under the Stretcher," it allows readers to learn what life is like for an Israeli soldier today.

For those who want to learn more about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, this book offers personal stories from an American-raised boy, with American values, who served in the modern Israeli army.

"Under the Stretcher" takes you into the 2014 “Operation Protective Edge,” the latest of the Gaza-Israeli conflicts, through the eyes of Max Levin, who immigrated in 2012 to join the Israeli army. This book takes you step-by-step on his journey as he immigrates to Israel, learns Hebrew, and goes through many grueling try-outs to finally make it into one of Israel’s special forces units – Palchan Tzanhanim. He was then immediately thrust into this war, where he found himself fighting for his newfound friends and family. Max then had to cope with the aftermath of the war, the mourning of lost ones, and the psychological changes from being a soldier at war to a soldier at peace, trying to keep all parties safe and sound within in the dangerous West Bank.

To learn more about Israel’s latest war, this book provides detailed descriptions from both the front lines and behind enemy lines, looking at some of the vital operations that unfold during the war.

This book is a must for anyone interested in learning more about Israel, the Israel – Palestinian Conflict, Gaza, 2014 Operation Protective Edge, Lone Soldiers, The Israeli Army, War or Special Forces.
