1967 was a year that changed the course of history. When Egypt’s President Nasser closed the straits of Tiran to Israeli navigation, it triggered a conflict between Israel and the armies of Jordan, Syria and Egypt. Within six days the Israelis had occupied territories three times wider than their own, populated by over a million Palestinian Arabs. 1967 is not a military history, nor does it focus mainly on political developments. The year 1967 dramatically altered the lives of millions of individuals and this book focuses on the personal stories from both sides of the conflict.
