    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"

    Overall

    Tom Segev is a controversial writer ... who writes great books. The only think both Segev's supporters (on the left) and detractors (on the right) will agree on is that the Hebrew pronounciation of James Boles is atrocious.

    The book is really interesting ... you should also read/listen to Michael Oren's Six Days of War on this topic. (And Segev's One Palestine Complete)
