From the initial battle order issued to the Israeli air force on Monday 5 June 1967, to the final ceasefire on the evening of Saturday 10th, the Six-Day War between Israel and Syria, Egypt and Jordan was a riveting human drama. Building on his first-hand experience of the region after his five years as the BBC's Middle East Correspondent, as well as extensive original research, Jeremy Bowen now presents a compelling new history of the conflict. He recreates day by day, hour by hour, the bullying and brinkmanship that led four nations to war - a war that shaped the modern Arab-Israeli conflict. Understanding 1967 is the key to deciphering what is happening today in Gaza, the West Bank & Israel.
