9780935553543: Six Days in June: How Israel Won the 1967 Arab-Israeli War

In his seventeenth book, distinguished military historian Eric Hammel becomes the first chronicler of the 1967 Six Day War to unite the story of development of Israel's bold brand of military training and planning with a detailed narrative account of her breathtaking victories in Sinai, Jerusalem, The West Bank, and the Golan Heights. Unlike all earlier accounts of the 1967 war, Hammel's sweeping narrative describes how, from the early 1950s, the Israel Defense Force - Zahal - undertook a relentless and often visionary campaign to prepare for the inevitable war of national survival that, when it came, radically altered the Middle East and has profoundly influenced international politics ever since.

From Publishers Weekly:

In this highly readable popular history, Hammel ( Chosin ) maintains that the countdown for the Six-Day War began in July 1964, when Israel's completion of a system of canals and aqueducts to carry fresh water from the Sea of Galilee evoked fears in Arab neighbors that Israel was expecting an influx of settlers. Hammel argues convincingly that the 1967 war marked the finest performance of the Israel Defense Force, which in less than a week defeated the armies of Egypt, Jordan and Syria with a minimum of Israeli casualties. Pointing out that the IDF, unlike other military forces around the world, channels its best-educated conscripts into the combat arms rather than into the technical branches, Hammel illustrates the practical benefits of this policy with examples of imaginative improvisations by brigade- and squadron-level commanders during the 1967 war. With its emphasis on the David vs. Goliath aspects of the short decisive war, this proves a stirring tale. Jewish Book Club selection.

From Library Journal:

Hammel, author of 16 books on military campaigns, turns his attention to the Arab-Israeli Six Day War of June 1967. Military historians will be disappointed to see no footnotes, a thin bibliography, and an overall journalistic narrative rather than a history. Despite these drawbacks, Hammel does an excellent job of detailing how Israel prepared for the war and describing combat. Moreover, his highly readable style will be popular with public library patrons, especially if this is the first book they read on the subject. S.L.A. Marshall's Swift Sword: The Historical Record of Israel's Victory, June 1967 (o.p.) remains a better choice for military historians. Jewish Book Club selection.
