The battlefields heroics, the strategy, the lightning action of the Six Day Arab-Israeli War - these are by now well documented. But what was it like on the home front?

Here in the pages of an on-the-spot diary is the warm and human story of an American Jewish Family who lived through those frantic and awesome days.

This is an honest and candid portrayal, without frills or embellishments. Here you will relive it as it was: the fear, agony, and despair, as well as the joy, triumph, and laughter. And you will meet the Israelis as they were, not romanticized or idealized, but as flesh-and-blood: the heretics and the pious, the sinners and the saints, the cowards and the brave.

In this deeply moving volume you will weep and laugh as you live this exciting moment in history which takes you from the brink of disaster to that moment of miraculous triumph which stunned the world on the 28th of Iyar.

Newly designed and updated, this riveting account by Rabbi Emanuel Feldman now includes a prologue with perspectives on the 50th anniversary of the Six Day War.
