The Lion's Gate: On the Front Lines of the Six Day War

Steven Pressfield

The exciting real tale of 1 of the main not going and extraordinary army victories in history.

June five, 1967. Israel is surrounded through enemies who wish not anything lower than her utter extinction. The Soviet-equipped Egyptian military has massed one thousand tanks at the nation’s southern border. Syrian heavy weapons are shelling her from the north. To the east, Jordan and Iraq are relocating mechanized brigades and fighter squadrons into place to attack.

June 10, 1967. The Arab armies were routed, their air forces absolutely destroyed. Israel’s citizen-soldiers have seized the Gaza Strip and the Sinai Peninsula from Egypt, the Golan Heights from Syria, East Jerusalem and the West financial institution from Jordan. Moshe Dayan has entered the Lion’s Gate of the outdated urban of Jerusalem to face with the paratroopers who've liberated Judaism’s holiest site—the Western Wall.

Drawing on 1000's of hours of interviews with veterans of the war—fighter and helicopter pilots, tank commanders and Recon infantrymen, paratroopers, in addition to ladies squaddies, other halves, and others—bestselling writer Steven Pressfield tells the tale of the Six Day warfare as you’ve by no means skilled it before.
