The story of the labor pains of the birth of the Jewish state of Israel is always hard to read,, but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try. The characters are fictionalized but they could have been real people, committed so strongly to bringing about the end of British governing of Jerusalem, that a single life was nothing compared to the existence of a Jewish Homeland, Well written, factual, and a kick in the gut.
This is as well written as all his other books, taking his story from good history and adding his characters to live through the time and its tribulations. This story tells the true facts about the establishment of Israel and how the British and Arab countries did all in their power to make the Jewish State an impossibility and how Israel prevailed against all odds. An absolute must read.
In this book the author does a wonderful job of describing the struggle of Jews in Eretz-Israel in 1947, living under the British Mandate while attempting to rebuild their homeland. This is a work of fiction based on very detailed historical facts.
One of the best books I've ever read about the founding of the State of Israel. I was more than happy to overlook some of the romantic scenes that might certainly appeal to others. The essence of the story was so vivid and riveting that I was truly moved by the sacrifices made by those who went before us
