About this product

Product Information

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER * The first comprehensive account of the epoch-making Six-Day War, from the author of Ally --now featuring a fiftieth-anniversary retrospective 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. Writing with a novelist's command of narrative and a historian's grasp of fact and motive, Michael B. 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. Praise for Six Days of War "Powerful . . . A highly readable, even gripping account of the 1967 conflict . . . [Oren] has woven a seamless narrative out of a staggering variety of diplomatic and military strands." --The New York Times "With a remarkably assured style, Oren elucidates nearly every aspect of the conflict. . . . Oren's [book] will remain the authoritative chronicle of the war. His achievement as a writer and a historian is awesome." -- The Atlantic Monthly "This is not only the best book so far written on the six-day war, it is likely to remain the best." -- The Washington Post Book World "Phenomenal . . . breathtaking history . . . a profoundly talented writer. . . . This book is not only one of the best books on this critical episode in Middle East history; it's one of the best-written books I've read this year, in any genre." -- The Jerusalem Post "[In] Michael Oren's richly detailed and lucid account, the familiar story is thrilling once again. . . . What makes this book important is the breadth and depth of the research." -- The New York Times Book Review "A first-rate new account of the conflict." -- The Washington Post "The definitive history of the Six-Day War . . . [Oren's] narrative is precise but written with great literary flair. In no one else's study is there more understanding or more surprise." --Martin Peretz, Publisher, The New Republic "Compelling, perhaps even vital, reading." -- San Jose Mercury News

  • Tries to be everything

    Tries to be as thorough as a scholarly report, but with a novelist's flair. It's definitely gripping at times, and he did a great job incorporating Jordanian and Egyptian perspectives. Still, I walked away having no idea who the Syrians were, and wanting to hear more stories of 'the average citizen', in all of the countries involved. Still, a great read if you want tense meetings between world leaders, detailed combat scenes, and an emphasis on the Israeli perspective. The maps are terrible, and the citations are good for a NYTimes bestseller, but not up to the standards of academic histories.

  • Shows the reason why the Middle-East today, is the way it is.

    Excellent book about the politics, thought processes, and the attaack stratagies of the leaders of the countries involved in the war. A little complicated at times to follow, but, in the long run, a much better understanding of how the region and global powers shapes the present day Middle East conflicts. It also shows how really insignificant Palestinians were before this time period. The book shows how the Arabs use propaganda as a warfare to persaude public opinion in their favor.

  • Six Days of War

    This is a most comprehensive selection on the June war of 1967. Anyone who wants to know the reasons behind the strife should read this book. It is a completely unbiased and factual chronicling of the war and events leading up to it. Michael Oren does an excellent job helping the reader to understand the traits of the major and minor personalities involved. After reading this book one will come away with a concise understanding of not only the war but a general knowledge of the history of Israel as well. This is not a boring history book. It is a fact based page turner !
