The June 1967 Six Day War temporarily tripled the size of Israel and shook the world of superpower diplomacy. Oren sets out to present the most thoroughly researched study yet of the event, its leading players, and the events that led up to it. He succeeds beautifully. A striking insight is that Arab bombast was a significant factor in the Arab defeat--they were dazed by and believed their own propaganda, and that led to disaster. Oren is not only a lucid, compelling writer, but reader Robert Whitfield is a master at narrative drive through intonation alone. The listener cannot put this book down. A triumph.
