Cursed Victory tells the story of Israel's troubled presence in the West Bank, Gaza Strip, the Golan Heights and the Sinai Peninsula since its sweeping victory in the 1967 Six Day War. Drawing on countless high-level interviews, never-before-seen letters and top secret memos, distinguished Israeli historian Ahron Bregman traces the evolution of the military occupation over four decades.
Cursed Victory provides vivid portraits of the key players in this unfolding drama, including Moshe Dayan, Bill Clinton and Yasser Arafat, yet always reminds the reader how diplomatic negotiations in Madrid, New York and Oslo impacted the daily lives of millions of Arabs.
