NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER - The first comprehensive account of the epoch-making Six-Day War, from the author of Ally 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
