On June 5, 1967, fourteen hostile armies from four huge Arab nations suddenly descended upon the state of Israel from every side and direction. Yet in just six days, this tiny country not only defended herself, but won a decisive victory that changed the map of the Middle East.
Egyptian MIGs exploding in the cross hairs of Israeli jet sights, infantry troops pressing through the Sinai, and the momentous and emotional reunification of Jerusalem are just a few of the scenes you will witness in Follow Me's carefully selected series of the most up-close and intimate footage available from the Six Day War. Thirty seven Israeli combat photographers captured Israeli training, emergency preparations, strategy as explained to the soldiers themselves, fighting in the trenches, prisoners of war, aftermath, and memorial ceremonies- previously censored footage which was made available exclusively for this film. Combined with media coverage and accompanied by fascinating and informative narration, this video is a source of enlightenment for every viewer concerned with the current conflict in the Middle East, and is certain to provide you with a better historical and geographical understanding of the "Green Line" debate, the "Road Map" proposal, and the Peace-for-Land compromises so often spoken of today.
