Reply To: Which of the conflicts featured in the “100 Years of Conflict” lecture did you find to be the most interesting and why?

I also found the 1967 Six-Day war to be interesting because I had not previously understood that, leading up to that war, the French had been more commonly arms suppliers to the Israelis and not the Americans. I went and did some further research on my own and found out that all of the fighter jets that the Israelis were using to fight against the Arabs int he Six Day War were actually purchased from the French. I did not even think of the French as playing a very active role in the region after WWI.
