Escribing the battle for JerusalemSix Days is absolutely essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the politics of the region Ignorance Can be the greatest ally or the greatest enemy of an army at war In the book Six Days of War Michael B Oren explains in considerable detail ow Arab ignorance and mistrust was the real key to the vastly outnumbered Israelis defeating three Arab armies in just six days Oren shows ow the Israelis called up all of their reserves and prepared for weeks to attack Egypt before Egypt attacked them or to defend if Egypt attacked first And yet the Israeli attack on June 5 1967 came as a complete surprise to the commander of the Egyptian ArmyThe reasons are complicated but Oren makes a strong case that Field Marshall Abdel Hakim Amer supreme commander of Egyptian forces filled the upper ranks of the Egyptian military with cronies shoving aside talented leaders preparing for a coup against is childhood friend President Gamel Abdel NasserThe Israelis put Moshe Dayan in charge of the military just months before the war another signal to anyone paying attention that the war plans were for an attack Also just months before the war the Egyptians blockaded the Israeli port in Elat and all shipping Time pressure pushed the Israelis to act and yet the Egyptians blustered and waited and did not prepare for an attack let alone prepare for their own On June 5 nearly the entire Israeli Air Force attacked air bases all across Egypt By the afternoon than 80% of the Egyptian Air Force was burning wreckage most of it on the ground Cratering charges made the airfields useless At the same time the Israeli Defense Forces IDF rolled into Sinai in a multi pronged attack that succeeded so fast and so well that the most optimistic Israeli leaders could not believe it With so much of the IDF fighting on the ground and in the air in Sinai driving toward Egypt if the Jordanian and Syrian armies Good Thinking had attacked Israel wouldave to stop the attack and defend itself at minimum pulling all air support away from Egypt Both the Syrians and the Jordanians Death in Mumbai had sworn mutual aid in case of attack But nothingappened Ira also was to attack in support of Egypt It s forces sat in Jordan and Syria On June 7 fighting started near Jerusalem The Israelis ad no plans to "recapture Jerusalem but the Jordanians fired on the IDF from the Mount Scopus and other eights in Jerusalem "Jerusalem but the Jordanians fired on the IDF from the Mount Scopus and other O Colégio de Todos os Segredos heights in Jerusalem IDF attacked to take out the guns and by the night of June 9 10 retook Jerusalem andad the Jordanian army including the vaunted Arab Legion in full retrat all across the West Bank of the Jordan RiverDuring this period the Syrians shelled Israeli settlements The settlers on the frontier March Violets (Bernie Gunther, howled forelp On June 10 the IDF attacked in the North toward Syria If the Syrians Zoete tranen had attacked the Israelis wouldave been obliged to stop their offensives in Jordan and Egypt But the Syrians shelled civilians and stayed still Their army like the other two Arab armies was in Water Music headlong retreat on June 11 In war the mistakes of the enemy are often as important as the plans of the winners In this case arrogance and mistrust among the Egyptian leaders was followed by a betrayal by their allies The end was Israel than doubling in territory and smashing three Arab armies Oren explains battles in great detail especially retaking Jerusalem and the air attack that won the war on the first day He also gives the reader a lot of detail about propaganda Egypt used its media to deny their losses and tell the world they were winning the war Part of theesitation of the Jordanians and Syrians to come to the aid of Egypt was the glowing reports Egypt was sending of their great victories The other overwhelming impression the book gave me is of Revived how ignorant the Egyptians were of what the Israelis were doing despite the evidence in front of them The rest of the world was also largely ignorant ofow bad the situation was on the ground and Student Research Projects in Calculus how fast everything changed It reminded me ofow the world blundered into war in 1914 This book tells a complicated story very well I read this in a flash a few years ago It isn t a social istory nor is it investigative It yields a basis for an ideology I accept that I just read this review and it upset my indifference What can I say I m exhauste. Pled from power as a result of this war; borders were redrawn; daring strategies brilliantly succeeded or disastrously failed in a matter of ours And the balance of power changed in the Middle East and in the world A towering work of Love for Imperfect Things history and an enthrallinguman narrative Six Days of War is the most important book on the Middle East conflict to appear in a generation. New review Aug 09Since I ave been spending the last year reading about Israel and Palestine I may now class this book as shameless and apologetic when it comes to Israeli militarism My review below is shameless in many ways and I m a bit embarrased about it Oren says e is givng everyone eual treatment but ow can you be Israeli embassador to the US and not be biased This book supports Israel myths about itself and its military might and does little to acknowledge that the 1967 war was part of a catalyst of pain and suffering of the Palestinian people With the Israeli silence surrounding criticism of their own istory you wonder what this comprehensive book left out and for what purpose Old review Though the author says that e sets Out To Provide An Objective History Of to provide an objective istory of Six Day War there are two glowing descretions He s Jewish and Israeli And though again objectivity was the goal why did I find myself someone unsure of Divertimento howe falls on the Jews for Israel scale thinkng Woo Way to go Israel in response to the military narrative Yes it is a good book and it is probably as objective as possible eliciting some sympathy for King Hussein and Nasser while loathingloving Moshe Dayan that is you get to see Love Is a Fairy Tale how it ran from the inside You get to see read about the involvement of the USSR and USA especially ambivalent and Israel s plans for the Palestinians as it became apparent that they would end up with the West Bank and Gaza Spoiler Alert The Israelis were wary ofarming mosues on the way into East Jerusalem Promise at Dawn handed the Dome of the Rock over to Muslim authorities ASAP and wanted to make a federated Palestinian state autonomous to Israel Of course still not something that Yasser Arafat would accept just not impossible enough And there are always your people who think that the West Bank should be annexed and the Palestinians ousted but thank goodness these people were on the Israeli margins in 1967 Israel is seen best as a thriving democracy shown through its fractious cabinet its loathing of the prime minister and its fear of international sanction while the fatal error of the Arab countries was their inability to estimate Israel as such After the Egyptians lost their air force in the first fewours it was reported on Cairo radio that the "ARMY WAS PENETRATING ISRAEL AND LAYING SEIGE TO TEL "was penetrating Israel and laying seige to Tel Even Nasser was a victim of is own system no one told im the truth until it was much too late A fast read Finished in less than a week Egyptian and Syrian military incompetence and the sense that Israel s back was against the wall these were my impressions of the war as it was acted out Ambassador Oren s narrative confirms those vague impressions but Bangkok Wakes to Rain he also provides the detail to flesh out the story Nervous breakdown fog of war big power politics and numerous other features are added to provide a clear picture of this uniuely short war that is still going on With mapsandy I used Mapuest s terrain and satellite maps it is an easy read that provides a full background gives just enough operational detail and connects the events of June1967 to the ongoing Arab Israeli contest I recommend it This is a wonderfully concise well written istory of the war between Israel and Egypt Syria and Jordan that lasted only six days in June 1967 The Arabs got pounded and Israel seized the West Bank Gaza the Golan Heights and the

Sinai Peninsula The War 
Peninsula The war won by Israel also brought that country decades of additional strife that continues to this day It also made the Arab nations determined to wipe out the Jewish stateOren as written a fair Darkmere history with all sides presented with no apparent bias or judgment He gained access to previously undisclosed material soe Et si la maladie n'tait pas un hasard ? has records of internal meetings with all the political parties involved And there are lots of them The Middle East doesn t exist in a vacuum Other nationsave stuck their noses into the region In this case the Soviet Union sided with Egypt and Syria but only to an extent never daring to get involved in the actual fighting The US played a similar role with Israel pledging undying support but no military involvement So while outside actors did their best to shape events the real fighting and dying were done by Israelis Egyptians Syrians and JordaniansIt s true the Arab armies were routed but. Though it lasted for only six tense days in June the 1967 Arab Israeli war never really ended Every crisis that as ripped through this region in the ensuing decades from the Yom Kippur War of 1973 to the ongoing intifada is a direct conseuence of those six days of fighting Michael B Oren’s magnificent Six Days of War an internationally acclaimed bestseller is the first. ,
