Abstract : This paper examines the conduct of the Arab--Israeli conflict in 1967, 'The Six Day War', from the perspective of the Operational Artist. It first provides a brief chronology of the significant historical events leading up to the conflict, and then it provides a discussion of some pertinent aspects of both the Egyptian and Israeli Operational Designs. This paper concentrates primarily on the operations in the Sinai. The author presents some lessons learned from the conflict, how they remain of interest to the military professional today, and explores the relationship between the abilities of belligerents to implement the tenets of operational art and the military potential that is available to each side.
