Overview

34 Days: Israel, Hezbollah, and the War in Lebanon by Amos Harel, Avi Issacharoff

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.
