Chaim Herzogs credibility was high as a historian in Pakistani military and his classic book " War of Atonement" was compulsory reading in the military history paper.

GENERAL CHAIM HERZOG ON ISRAELI STRATEGIC FAILURE ON THE SYRIAN FRONT -1973
The Isreali forces advanced some fifteen miles into Syria, but the attack was stopped some eighteen miles south of Damascus, when on 12 October the Iraqi First Armoured Division established contact with the Israeli forces.
From a strategic point of view the Israeli attack did not succeed in destroying the Syrian and Iraqi forces.
Syria was not taken out of the war,and it appeared at this point that Israeli military effort was coming to an end.
Indeed the Chief of Staff pointed out to the Israeli government on 12 October that the attack in the north had been stopped in its tracks by the Joint Syrian and Iraqi forces.
