book: Six Days of War

SixdaysSix Days of War: June 1967 and the Making of the Modern Middle East
Michael B. Oren

Matt Dundon sent me this book a while ago and i just got around to it now. i highly recommend it (and it is available on audible). a great story about the shaping of the modern middle east, the problems within Israel and the Arab states, and how the winner of a war still has little security.

this is a very detailed account of the circumstances leading up to the Six Day War and a very detailed hour-by-hour account of the war. the audio book is about 21 hours or roughly 1/6 of the total time the war itself took.
