It is very difficult to cover in a single book the detailed history of the Mirage, Nesher and Kfir in the IAF; a better approach would be an encyclopedia. However, this book and the next two to follow are a fair trial to present the most important facts about these fighters and the legendary pilots who flew them. Many chapters of this history shaped the air fighting doctrine are still being taught in Air Force academies of many countries, including the famous Top Gun of the U.S. Navy. Marcel Dassault named it "Mirage" because he wanted the aircraft to be like a "Fata Morgana": you can see it, but you can not reach it, So it was in it's time, at least when flown by I AF pilots. The Kfir (Lion Cub, in Hebrew) was a natural evolution of the Mirage. Following it's enormous success during the Six-Day War, the IAF ordered and paid for 50 Mirage M5Js, but never received them, because of President De Gaule's arms embargo on Israel.
