    In Israel and the West, it is called the Six Day War. In the Arab world, it is known as the June War or, simply, as "the Setback". Never has a conflict so short, unforeseen, and largely unwanted by both sides so transformed the world. The Yom Kippur War, the war in Lebanon, the Camp David accords, the controversy over Jerusalem and Jewish settlements in the West Bank, the intifada, and the rise of Palestinian terror are all part of the outcome of those six days.

    Patrick says: "Great overview of Middle East troubles"
    "Very Difficult to Follow"

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think those who have an indepth knowledge of the places, politics and charaacters prior to listening to this book. I thought I was going to be able to follow it but there was too much detail and I got lost in all the characters and locations. As one person said in their feedback....listen with a map at hand.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Michael B. Oren? Why or why not?

    Probably not.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I didn't really care for his voice so it was hard for me to listen.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It probably would be a very good listen for those studying historical facts, who already has points of reference prior to listening...It's not for the casual listener. To sum it up...I was looking for a novel and this came across more like a textbook.
