At the age of 28, Ehud Olmert became the youngest member of Israel's parliament, the Knesset. Slowly, he climbed the Israeli political ladder, 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 achieving his life's dream, Olmert, the aspiring peacemaker, found himself leading Israel in a war against Lebanon. When hostilities ended without a victory by Israel, Olmert's popularity plummeted, and he found himself fighting for his political life. In this new biography, read how Olmert made his way to the top in the cutthroat world of Israeli politics, and his struggle to hold on to the position he'd sought his entire adult life.
