The Sinai Blunder

Indar Jit Rikhye (Oxford & IBH Publishers, 1978)

 

 

The history of the Middle East since World War I is a recapitulation of blunders - blunders which caused and prolonged the turmoil and bloodshed of the past 60 years, blunders by the great powers, by the Arabs and the Jews.  This book deals with the events that led to a disastrous Arab defeat in 1967, left Israel in occupation of Arab lands, and started yet another cycle of violence and armed conflict in the Middle East.
