Matches is the Israel Defence Force codename for a soldier: someone who strikes, burns and dies. Alan Kaufman, has written a moving novel based on his experiences which comes recommended by David Mamet and Amos Oz.

In his play What we did to Weinstein, Ryan Craig features a British born Jew in the Israeli army.

How can literature render the experience? How can one express the camaraderie but also the horror and the doubts without betraying the ideals? How has the representation of the Israeli soldier evolved with the changing role of the army?
