As a part of GCSE History students will look at the Middle East during the period from 1948-1999. Amongst the topics studied are the wars of 1956, 1967 and 1973.
In the absence of a comprehensive peace in the Middle East, more wars were to be expected in attempts to reverse the verdict of the 1948 war. Wars did indeed follow, in 1956, 1967 and again in 1973. After successes for Israel in 1956 and 1967, the Arab states did best in the 1973 war. Subsequently, serious talks took place with Egypt.
