Ariel Sharon served as Israel's prime minister from 2001 to 2006, but Sharon's long career in public service began with Israel’s War of Independence in 1948. Sharon suffered a stroke in 2006, leaving him in a coma-like state. While he is now immobilized, Ariel Sharon leaves a legacy that will no doubt affect his country for decades to come.
Gilad Sharon is Ariel Sharon's youngest son. His new book is a biography of his father, called "Sharon: The Life of a Leader." He reflects on his father’s life and the future of Israel.
