    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 Yastrow says: "Awesome book, atrocious pronounciation"
    "really damn good book"
    Overall

    listening to this book makes you feel like you are actually there, watching over Israeli society during this time period and listening in on the cabinet meetings etc. I almost started choking up while i was eating a burrito today listening to it because the book was giving such an emotional and true account of the war... I read/listen to a lot of books and this one comes highly recommended for those who love history and have an interest in the middle east.
