Here is the classic retelling of the spellbinding events of the birth of Israel. Moment by moment, Collins and Lapierre weave a brilliant tapestry of shattered hopes, fierce pride, and breathtaking daring as the Arabs, Jews, and the British collide in their fight for control of Jerusalem. "O Jerusalem!' meticulously re-creates this historic struggle. From the commanders, Ben Gurion and Golda Meir, to the soldiers, rabbinic students and refugees taken directly from their ships to fight. From the explosives expert planting bombs to the charismatic chieftain whose death in battle doomed the Arab cause but inspired a generation of Palestinians. From the legacy of peacekeeping after General Allenby's conquest of Jerusalem to their departure in the face of the onslaught. "O Jerusalem!" is a towering testament to the fiery birth of Israel and an unforgettable tale of faith and violence, of betrayal and indomitable courage.
