Overview


This is the first comprehensive account of the progression of the Second Lebanese War, from the border abduction of an Israeli soldier on the morning of July 12, 2006, through the hasty decision for an aggressive response; the fateful discussions in the Cabinet and the senior Israeli command; to the heavy fighting in south Lebanon and the raging diplomatic battles in Paris, Washington and New York.  

The book answers the following questions: has Israel learned the right lessons from this failed military confrontation? What can Western countries learn from the IDF's failure against a fundamentalist Islamic terror organization?  And what role did Iran and Syria play in this affair?

34 Days delivers the first blow-by-blow account of the Lebanon war and new insights for the future of the region and its effects on the West.

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
