    Going far beyond a military account, Tom Segev (One Palestine, Complete; The Seventh Million) re-creates the crisis in Israel before 1967, showing how economic recession, a full grasp of the Holocaust's horrors, and the dire threats made by neighbor states combined to produce a climate of apocalypse. Segev depicts Israel's bravado after its victory, the mood revealed in a popular joke in which one soldier says to his friend, 'Let's take over Cairo'; the friend replies, 'Then what shall we do in the afternoon?' Segev challenges the view that the war was inevitable, citing, as cause, a series of disastrous miscalculations.

Tom Segev introduces an array of unforgettable characters, tracks the steady advance of Jews and Arabs towards confrontation, and puts forth a radical new argument that boggles the mind. Addenda.
