45 years ago: The Six-Day War

Jewish Ideas Daily has just published a brief and handy day-by day summary of the Six-Day War of June 5-10, 1967. The series starts with the day before the war began:

June 4, 1967: On the Eve of the Six-Day War

June 5, 1967: Day One

June 6, 1967: Day Two

June 7, 1967: Day Three

June 8, 1967: Day Four: "Attack! Attack"

June 9, 1967: Day Five

June 10, 1967: Day Six

It's a good thing the war lasted exactly six days, or another name for the war would have been necessary (clever, those Israelis).

The series is told from the Israeli perspective, so there's no mention of the June 8, 1967 attack by Israeli planes on the USS Liberty, which would have been regarded by the United States as an act of war if done by any other country.
