At the age of 28, Ehud Olmert became the youngest member of the Knesset, Israel's parliament. He climbed Israel's political ladder slowly and steadily, adjusting his views and positions as the times and public opinion changed, until he achieved the ultimate prize-prime minister of Israel. But less than four months after reaching that peak, Olmert, an aspiring peacemaker, found himself leading Israel in a war against Lebanon. When the hostilities ended without an Israeli victory, Olmert's popularity plummeted, and he found himself fighting for his political life. This new biography tells how Olmert made his way to the top in the cutthroat world of Israeli politics and describes his struggle to hold on to the position that had been his life's dream.
