Abstract

Shortly after the Lebanon war, I held a series of meetings with Dr. Dan Enoch, the IDF’s chief psychiatrist. Dr. Enoch, a man in his late 30s at the time, had extensive battle experience, both as a combatant and as a physician. He served in the Six-Day War, the Yom Kippur War, and in Lebanon. Shortly before the Yom Kippur War broke out, the platoon in which he was the medical officer entered a mine field. At great personal risk, he helped rescue and treat many of his comrades, for which he was later redecorated with the Gallantry Medal.
