Comprehensively illustrated with artwork, maps and battlefield views, this new history brings one of the most important of 20th century campaigns to life.

Editorial Reviews

"Simon Dunstan, who is quickly becoming my favorite Osprey author, does his usual superlative job of telling the story of the conflict between Israel and the two nations of Jordan and Syria. [The book is] superbly illustrated by Peter Dennis who does some great artwork... There are the usual great selection of period photos of the war and those who fought in it. You can add this to your list of books that you simply must have. It is a great read and one that I know you will enjoy." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness, (February 2010)
