About this product
- DescriptionThe war of June 1967 between Israel and Arab states was widely perceived as being forced on Israel to prevent the annihilation of its people by Arab armies hovering on its borders. Documents w declassified by key governments question this view. The UK, USSR, France and the USA all knew that the Arab states were t in attack mode and tried to dissuade Israel from attacking. In later years, this war was held up as a precedent allowing an attack on a state that is expected to attack. It has even been used to justify a pre-emptive assault on a state expected to attack well in the future. Given the lack of evidence that it was waged by Israel in anticipation of an attack by Arab states, the 1967 war can longer serve as such a precedent. This book seeks to provide a corrective on the June 1967 war.
