    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"
    "Superb Historical Reference"
    Overall

    Well written and thoroughly researched using mostly primary resources, this book gives a detailed account of the year 1967 from the Israeli perspective. Not restricting himself solely to the 6 Day War but socieo-economic, cultural, historical, as well as military aspects of that pivotal year. The book seems to be objective citing the good and the bad of the decisions of the Israeli government and military during 1967. So much background information is provided that the book is occassionaly tedious, nonetheless the book is highly recommended.
