    Going far beyond a military account, Segev re-creates the crisis in Israel before 1967, showing how economic recession, a full grasp of the Holocaust's horrors, and the dire threats made by neighbor states combined to produce a climate of apocalypse. He depicts the country's bravado after its victory and the mood revealed in a popular joke in which one soldier says to his friend, "Let's take over Cairo". The friend replies, "Then what shall we do in the afternoon?"

    Steve says: "Awesome book, atrocious pronounciation"
    "Great book that really helps you understand"
    Overall

    I can emphathize with the rightist hard-liners who don't want you to read (ahem... listen) to this book. But, I've read about Oren's and Segev's accounts of the 1967 and I think Segev's is more informative and retrospective. Advice: Read both but if you have time to only read one, then choose this book.
