On July 8, 2014, Israel launched air strikes on Hamas-controlled Gaza, followed by a ground invasion. The ensuing fifty-one days of war left more than 2,200 people dead. Max Blumenthal was in Gaza and throughout Israel -- Palestine during what he argues was an entirely avoidable catastrophe. Blumenthal radically shifts the discussion around a number of highly contentious issues: the use of civilians as human shields by Israeli forces, the arbitrary targeting of Palestinian civilians, and the radicalization of Israeli public officials and top military personnel. The 51 Day War is an urgent warning that the aftermath of the conflict has made another military assault on Gaza almost inevitable.
