How the 1967 War Shaped the Middle East By Jeremy Bowen (420 Pages)Publisher: Thomas Dunne Books, 2005
Building on his firsthand experience of the region after his five years as the BBC's Middle East correspondent, as well as extensive original research, Jeremy Bowen presents a compelling new history of the conflict. Six Days re-creates day by day, hour by hour, the bullying and brinkmanship that led four nations to war, interweaving testimonies of combatants from all sides in a seamless narrative. A rigorous and original piece of modern history as vivid as fiction. Six Days not only sheds new light on one of the key conflicts of the twentieth century, it explains much about the Middle East and the problems the region still faces today.
