Avraham Albert Mandler (Hebrew: אברהם מנדלר‎‎; 3 May 1929 in Linz, Austria – 13 October 1973, in Sinai, Egypt) was an Israeli major general. In the 1967 Six-Day War he was a colonel commanding the 8th Mechanized Infantry Brigade. This brigade pushed "elements of the Shazli Force and the Egyptian 6th Division straight into an ambush laid by Arik Sharon" at Nakhl on June 8, 1967. During the Yom Kippur War, Major General Mandler was commander of the IDF's armored forces in the Sinai. He was killed in action on the 13th October 1973 by Egyptian artillery fire after his voice was intercepted and identified by Egyptian electronic warfare units using tactical COMINT equipment, who immediately transmitted his position to the nearest Second Army artillery battery.
