    The Yom Kippur War of October was a terrible surprise, which put Israel's security - and even survival - in jeopardy. By the end of the war, Israel had turned the tables and both Cairo and Damascus were under threat. But that did not diminish the sense of shock which shook the nation in the aftermath of the war. Israel's victory in the 'Six Day War' sowed the seeds of the Yom Kippur War. At hrs on 6 October the Egyptian army launched an assault crossing of the Suez Canal.
