This chapter examines the events during the four-week truce of the Arab-Israeli War. Some analysts believe that the truce was a wasted time for the Arab side having made no preparations to reorganize and re-equip their armies so that they would be better placed in the event of the war being resumed. This chapter also discusses King Abdullah's tour of Arab capitals to consolidate his leadership and Count Folke Bernadotte's proposals for the settlement.
