Overview of 1967: Israel, the War, and the Year that Transformed the Middle East

Tom Segev's acclaimed One Palestine, Complete and The Seventh Million overturned accepted views of the history of Israel. In 1967, he brings his masterly skills to the watershed year when six days of war reshaped the country and the entire region.

Going far beyond a military account, Segev re-creates the apocalyptic climate in Israel before the war, as well as the swift transformation from dread to bravado that came once Israel's astonishing military superiority became apparent. He reconsiders the legendary figures-Moshe Dayan, Levi Eshkol, Gamal Abdel Nasser, and Lyndon Johnson-and introduces an epic cast of soldiers, lobbyists, refugees, and settlers. He reveals as never before Israel's intimacy with the White House as well as the political and military rivalries that sabotaged any chance of peace. Above all, Segev challenges the view that the war was inevitable, showing that behind the bloodshed was a series of disastrous miscalculations. Vibrant and original, 1967 is a necessary reevaluation of that pivotal year.

Synopsis of 1967: Israel, the War, and the Year that Transformed the Middle East

* Mp3 CD Format *. From Israel's leading historian, a sweeping history of 1967---the war, what led up to it, what came after, and how it changed everything. Drawing on unpublished letters and diaries, as well as government memos and military records, Tom Segev reconstructs an era of new possibilities and tragic missteps. A vibrant and original history, 1967 is sure to stand as the definitive account of that pivotal year.

The New York Times Book Review - David Margolick

Segev's look into the origins of the occupation is invaluable. His research is prodigious, his intelligence obvious, his ability to reconstruct complex chains of events impressive. He writes clearly and confidently and has an eye for the telling, and often witty, detail.
