Overview

"34 Days reconstructs the progression of the war, from the soldiers' abduction through the hasty Israeli decision for an aggressive response; the fateful discussions within the Cabinet and among the senior Israeli command; and the heavy fighting in south Lebanon. It analyzes the developments on the Lebanese side - from the Hezbollah bunkers in the South, to Dahia, the Shiite quarter in Beirut that Israel destroyed, through the power struggles between Prime Minister Fouad Siniora and Hezbollah Secretary General Hassan Nasrallah. It investigates the raging diplomatic battles that took place in Paris, Washington, and New York, which would eventually end the war." 34 Days presents the 2006 Lebanon war as it has never been described before. It is based on hundreds of interviews with key figures in the war, including prominent politicians on all sides; soldiers on the ground; the mediators for France, the United States, and the United Nations; and Israeli and Lebanese citizens.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"For readers keen to understand how Israel’s leadership stumbled unprepared into one of the most devastating wars of recent years, this admirably slim volume provides all the answers." —Jerusalem bureau chief, Financial Times

“Based on hundreds of interviews with players on both sides, the book is a thorough, clear-eyed (neither side escapes hard censure) view a of short-lived war, the influence of which is, and will continue to be, widely felt.” —Globe and Mail, Canada

Praise for Harel and Issachorff's The Seventh War:

"In this book, journalists Harel and Isacharoff trace the trajectory of the conflict. Though the authors are Israeli they take both sides to task." —Newsweek

“Perhaps the most valuable aspect of Amos Harel's and Avi Isacharoff's excellent book, The Seventh War is that for the first time in more than four years of warfare, one can take a break and read a comprehensive work of journalism which allows a degree of perspective." —Jerusalem Post
