A powerful and comprehensive study of the Six-Day War for Palestine of 1967.
In light of the continuing conflict in the Middle East it is now more important than ever to understand the history of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
In June 1967 war broke out between Israel and its neighbouring Arab states. The conflict lasted just six days, but its effect would focus the attention of the world on the Middle East and leave a permanent mark on world history.
Writing in the immediate aftermath of the conflict, Brigadier Peter Young describes in detail the origins of the crisis leading up to the outbreak of war and the subsequent air and land fighting in the Middle East.
Drawing on his own experience commanding a regiment of the Arab Legion, Brigadier Young presents an expert military analysis of the dramatic campaign which saw Israeli forces seize large portions of territories from Egypt, Syria and Jordan in one of the most unlikely and astonishing military victories in history.
The Israeli Campaign 1967 is an authoritative analysis of one of the most dramatic campaigns in the history of the Middle East, the consequences of which are still felt to this day
