Marked by bloodshed and scarred by battle, both emerged from a half century of chaos and conflict eager to establish the peace. He was born on February 27, 1928 in the farming community. At 14, Sharon joins the Haganah; an under-ground militia that will form part of the Israeli Defense Forces. In 1953, Sharon was recalled to military service. Israelis and Arabs begin their second major war in 1956, known as the Sinal Campaign.
