On July 8, 2014, Israel launched air strikes and a ground invasion of Gaza, that lasted 51 days, leaving over 2,000 people dead, the vast majority of whom were Gazan civilians. During the assault, at least 10,000 homes were destroyed and, according to the United Nations, nearly 300,000 Palestinians were displaced. Max Blumenthal was on the ground during what he argues was an entirely avoidable catastrophe. In this explosive work of reportage, Blumenthal reveals the harrowing conditions and cynical deceptions that led to the ruinous war. Here, for the first time, Blumenthal unearths and presents shocking evidence of atrocities he gathered in the rubble of Gaza.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Max Blumenthal audaciously takes in-your-face, on-the-ground journalism into the realm of geopolitics." - Juan Cole, author of The New Arabs and Engaging the Muslim World "This will be the definitive history of the Israeli war of 2014 against Gaza. Blumenthal has once again demonstrated his devotion to truth and justice." - W. Patrick Lang, Former Defense Intelligence Agency head for Middle East / South Asia "Max Blumenthal has spent the last decade transforming himself into one of the most vital voices in journalism today, always speaking truth to power with fearlessness and integrity. As with his previous books, The 51 Day War is sure to be talked about for years to come." -Reza Aslan, author of Zealot and No god but God "Explosive, pull-no-punches reporting that is certain to stir controversy." - Kirkus Review "A gripping eyewitness narrative of the latest pointless war in Gaza last year" - Foreign Policy "Max Blumenthal's latest book, The 51 Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza, tells a powerful story powerfully well." - David Swanson "Max Blumenthal's new book about this Israeli attack [is] so compelling, so necessary. Entitled The 51 Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza, it humanizes this event like nothing else I've read[...] The book is filled with very well-documented history, facts and statistics relevant to what the Israeli military calls Operation Protective Edge. And all of those are both interesting and important." - Glenn Greenwald, The Intercept "To really understand what happened, read Max Blumenthal'sThe 51 Day War: Ruin and Resistance in Gaza. His concision and clarity are established in the introduction" -Independent
