In 1967 the future of the state of Israel was far from certain. But with its swift and stunning military victory against an Arab coalition led by Egypt in the Six Day War, Israel not only preserved its existence but redrew the map of the region, with fateful consequences. The Camp David Accords, the assassinations of Anwar Sadat and Yitzhak Rabin, the intifada, and the current troubled peace negotiations-all of these trace their origins to the Six Day War.
Michael Oren's Six Days of War is a gripping account of one of the most dramatic and important episodes in the history of the Middle East. With exhaustive research in primary sources-including Soviet, Jordanian, and Syrian files not previously available-he has reconstructed the tension-filled background and the dramatic military events of the conflict, drawing the threads together in a riveting narrative, enlivened by crisp characters sketches of major characters (many of whom, from Ariel
Sharon to Yasser Arafat, are still leading figures today). Most important, Oren has unearthed some dramatic new findings. He has discovered that a top-secret Egyptian plan to invade Israel and wipe out its army and nuclear reactor came within hours of implementation. He also reveals how the superpowers
narrowly avoided a nuclear showdown over the Eastern Mediterranean and how a military coup in Israel almost occurred on the eve of the war.

«This admirable book is likely to be the last word on the six-day war for a long time»

The Sunday Times June 2002

«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

«the most detailed, the most comprehensive and by far the best-documented history that we have on this short but fateful war»

– Michael B. Oren har med denne boken gjort en meget god jobb i å skildre det politiske klimaet og de lokale forhold i midtøsten på 60-tallet, samt de globale politiske forhold. Boken gir slik sett et meget interessant innblikk i hvordan forholdene mellom Israel og araberlandene var, og hvordan forholdene mellom supermaktene var. Opptrappingen til krigen blir grundig beskrevet, og krigføringen blir også nøye skildret, både med tanke på gjennomføringen og de diplomatiske og politiske konsekvensene av krigens gang. Boken er meget lesverdig og tar med de fleste sider av saken, men eg savner likevel litt mer innsikt i hvordan sovjeterne så på situasjonen. Men at denne siden ikke blir like kraftig belyst som andre har vel kanskje sin naturlige forklaring. For den interesserte er dette en meget nyttig og velskrevet bok.
