4. Military Strategy

During his military career, Sharon was considered by many to be one of the country’s greatest strategists. In 1953, Sharon created and led an elite military group known simply as Unit 101. The IDF branch was charged with¬†launching retaliatory strikes against Palestinian terrorists, but was officially dissolved after an attack caused the death of innocent women and children. However, the unit merged with a Paratroopers Battalion with Sharon at its head, to continue to employ the strategies of Unit 101.
