Six Days of War : June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East
In Israel and the West, it is called the Six-Day War, in the Arab world it is known as the June War, or simply as 'The Setback'. Never has a conflict so short, unforeseen and largely unwanted by both sides, so transformed the world. "Six Days of War" is the most comprehensive history ever published of this dramatic and pivotal event, the first to explore it both as a military struggle and as a critical episode in the global Cold War. Oren spotlights all the participants - Arab, Israel, Soviet and American - telling the story of how the war broke out and the shocking ways it unfolded.
