Synopsis

Synopsis

Osprey's examination of Jordan and Syria's involvement in the Six Day War (1967). Following the lightning destruction of the Egyptian forces at the outbreak of the Six Day War, Israel turned to the forces of Jordan and Syria, with whom Egypt had signed a mutual-defence pact, and who had now entered the war. Jordan's army moved against West Jerusalem and central Israel, while Syria began shelling Israeli towns from the seemingly impregnable Golan Heights.

The IDF's invasion of the Golan was as daring and successful as its more famous Egyptian victory, but its success in Jordan - taking the West Bank - sowed the seeds of its future troubles. Comprehensively illustrated with artwork, maps and battlefield views, this new history brings one of the most important of 20th century campaigns to life.
Praise

Praise

"Simon Dunstan, who is quickly becoming my favorite Osprey author, does his usual superlative job of telling the story of the conflict between Israel and the two nations of Jordan and Syria. [The book is] superbly illustrated by Peter Dennis who does some great artwork... There are the usual great selection of period photos of the war and those who fought in it. You can add this to your list of books that you simply must have. It is a great read and one that I know you will enjoy." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness / www.modelingmadness.com (February 2010)
