Oren's magnificent Six Days of War, an Internationally acclaimed bestseller, is the first comprehensive account of this epoch-making event." "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."--Jacket." ;
