Product Description

Review

This admirable book is likely to be the last word on the six-day war for a long time (The Sunday Times June 2002)

the most detailed, the most comprehensive and by far the best-documented history that we have on this short but fateful war (The Guardian)

most comprehensive history yet... Six Days of War scores highly in telling an extremely complicated story within a narrative which despite being loaded with a crushing volume of research reads at times like the breeziest blockbuster... Oren's narrative is at its most gripping during the day-by-day account of the war (Financial Times)

About the Author

Format: Hardcover
First of all, please go easy on the hostile comments.

I would not consider myself a supporter of the state of Israel, nor of its policies. Although there is so much to admire about the country and that I acknowledge.

Anyway, I just finished this book and I found it absolutely riveting. Although I was ready for signs of bias, I found it admirably free of that.

Alright, Mr Oren is quick to label certain Palestinian groups as terrorists while not using the same label for Irgun; but that's nitpicking.

If you want a short background on the events after the creation of the state of Israel and followed by a very detailed analysis of the Six Day War, the events leading up to it and its aftermath this is a great book.

Thoroughly recommend it.

Excellent contents. I was on the fringe of it. Should be listed as required reading for all shades of political opinions.

Having been in the Middle East at the time of the war it was interesting to learn what was really going on in the background. Especially as one could only get very limited news at the time.
A very detailed book not possibly for the light reader.

Michael Oren has written a wonderful and very balanced book upon the Six Days War. Using a wide range of sources -Arab, Jewish, American, Soviet- he has constructed a thoroughly researched account of those six days that shook the world. His narrative is precise but not boring. I highly recommend it for everyone interested in the Middle East.

For those who haven't studied Arab-Israeli political issues in detail, and maybe even for those who have, this is a brilliantly written book; very well balanced despite Michael's nationality. Fascinating to see the personalities, egos and political machinations behind such a major world event. Very interesting, exceedingly readable and completely un-put-downable!

An excellent history of the six day war in Israel. The assistance of the U.S. is also clearly illustrated to the reader.
