Synopsis

Synopsis

In May 1967, Egypt expelled the United Nations peacekeeping forces stationed in the Sinai desert and deployed its army along its border with Israel, its moves coordinated with those of Jordan and Syria. By June, Israel realized that the international community would not act, and launched a pre-emptive strike against the combined Arab forces. The ensuing Six Day War (June 5-10, 1967) was a crushing defeat for the Arab world, one that tripled the area controlled by Israel and which sowed the seeds for the Yom Kippur War of 1973 and the continuing strife in the region.

Written by the author of Osprey's Yom Kippur War, this volume covers the background to the war and the campaign against the Egyptians in the Sinai Peninsula, including the initial devastating air assault that showed the world how vital air supremacy was in modern combat.
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 Egypt in the Sinai campaign... All of this is superbly illustrated by Peter Dennis who does some great art work and...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 / modelingmadness.com  (February 2010)
