Note
As commander of the Jerusalem front in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War, chief of staff of the Israel Defence Forces during the 1956 Suez Crisis, but mainly as Defense Minister during the Six-Day War in 1967, he became to the world a fighting symbol of the new state of Israel. In the 1930's he was trained by Orde Wingate to set traps for Palestinian-Arabs fighting the British and lost an eye in a raid on Vichy forces in Lebanon. Dayan was close to David Ben-Gurion and joined him in setting up Rafi in 1965 with Shimon Peres. They eventually rejoined Mapai becoming Defence Minister in the 1967 Six-Day War and the 1973 Yom Kippur war
