Military History;Sep2007, Vol. 24 Issue 6, p12
The article focuses on the planned U.S. intervention aimed at ending the Six-Day War between Israel and several Arab countries in 1967. According to a declassified study by the Institute of Defense Analyses, in the spring of 1967 the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff ordered a military command to prepare for intervention in an Arab-Israeli War, one plan on behalf of Israel, the other on behalf of the Arabs. Israel was unaware of U.S. plans.
