SIX DAYS IN JUNE
The brief but explosive skirmish, though a decisive victory for Israel, helped transform secular pan-Arab nationalism into a militant fundamentalism and fueled the Palestinian nationalist movement. A mix of location footage (from both then and now), primary source photographs, and commentary by direct participants and other contemporaries describes the major figures, the tense weeks that preceded the war, the bloody days of fighting, and the never-ending cycle of violence that dogs the region today.
“If you want to understand the Middle East today, Six Days in June is a must. The program triumphs with gripping footage of battle, tightly edited, and telling interviews with former protagonists. Strong writing provides a superior history lesson.”—The Boston Globe
