    Review:
    "This new book examines the relationship between the Israeli armed forces, the government and the origins of the 1967 war. It analyses the effect of the Israel Defence Forces (IDF) on Israel's defence policy between 1963 and 1967, against the backdrop of developments in the Middle East, and Israeli decision-making immediately preceding the Six Day War in June 1967. A watershed event in the Arab-Israeli conflict, the war has had a profound effect on the development of the Palestinian problem and the character of Israel over the past four decades." "Making extensive use of original documents, including protocols of meetings of the general staff and the government, discussions between the Prime Minister, Minister of Defence and the Chief of Staff, as well as testimonies by IDF generals, this volume sheds new light on the dramatic tension between the army and the Israeli government in the weeks preceding the conflict and the army's intervention in diplomatic initiatives."--Jacket.
