Operation Nickel Grass: Richard Nixon and the Yom Kippur War is a critical examination of the American military intervention in the 1973 Yom Kippur War. At the request of the Israeli government, President Nixon ordered the United States Air Force to ship military equipment, weapons, tanks and jets to aid Israel in this conflict. Nixon had multiple goals by helping the Israelis in the Yom Kippur War. He wanted Israel to win the war believing that an Israeli victory would lead to formal peace talks. Since 1948, the Israelis and Arabs had never signed an official peace treaty ending all hostilities. President Nixon wanted the United States to open formal negotiations between Israel and the Arab States after the Yom Kippur War had ended.
