Amazon.com: Books: Six Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East. Wow, it is amazing how things don’t change. If you replaced 1967 with 2002, you’d almost have the same story. There are many views on the Six Day War (a.k.a. The June War). This was fascinating to me because of the very personal accounts on all sides.
I had not realized how June 1967 was really all about personalities or that the incredible actions of leaders on all sides, from Egypt to Jordan to Syria to Israel were in many ways completely terrifying. Today of course, it feels like the same thing just got reenacted in Iraq.b
