Six-Day War, also called June War or Third Arab-Israeli War, brief war that took place June 5–10, 1967, and was the third of the Arab-Israeli wars. Israel’s decisive victory included the capture of the Sinai Peninsula, Gaza Strip, West Bank, Old City of Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights; the status of these territories subsequently became a major point of contention in the Arab-Israeli conflict.

The fact that this small nation successfully defended itself from three modern armies on its doorstep is proof that a David can win against Goliath. However, it is also a lesson that small countries with very limited resources and very little defensive depth cannot afford a war of attrition and must therefore finish a war as soon as possible through maneuver. Also, best use of Combined Arms tactics in recent history; Guderian would be so proud.

While Israel is commendable for its commitment to its own defense, the role that the US -- specifically the Jewish-American community -- played in its survival should not be discounted.

This is an important detail to keep in mind when looking for lessons to apply in other contexts.
