Ben Shalit is a prominent Israeli. His field of expertise is military psychology, which of course has a bright side and a dark side. His work is used by the American author Dave Grossman for this book. This man's work is used to report some of why the Israeli's currently handle the women in combat issue the way they do. They found that sometimes Arab males in particular will fight to the bitter end where otherwise they might submit as a reaction to women.
