Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East

Michael B. Oren

Publisher: Presidio PressFormat: Paperback

“”Though it lasted for only six tense days in June, the 1967 Arab-Israeli war never really ended. Every crisis that has ripped through this region in the ensuing decades, from the Yom Kippur War of 1973 to the ongoing “intifada,” is a direct consequence of those six days of fighting. Michael B. Oren's magnificent “Six Days of War,” an internationally acclaimed bestseller, is the first comprehensive account of this epoch-making event.Writing with a novelist's command of narrative and a historian's grasp of fact and motive, Oren reconstructs both the lightning-fast action on the battlefields and the political shocks that electrified the world. Extraordinary personalities—Moshe Dayan and Gamal Abdul Nasser, Lyndon Johnson and Alexei Kosygin—rose and toppled from power as a result of this war; borders were redrawn; daring strategies brilliantly succeeded or disastrously failed in a matter of hours. And the balance of power changed—in the Middle East and in the world. A towering work of history and an enthralling human narrative, “Six Days of War” is the most important book on the Middle East conflict to appear in a generation.
