Ask people about the wars of modern-day Israel, and they’re likely to mention the Six-Day War of 1967. And indeed, that conflict is one of the most famous in the history of warfare.
If this kind of history intrigues you, don’t miss the story of Israel’s War of Independence! As World War II ended, Israel was reborn out of the ashes of the Holocaust. But even as the celebration of a miraculous United Nations vote was breaking out, gunshots were already being heard in Jerusalem. Completely surrounded by their enemies, short on men, ammunition and food, the earliest settlers of modern-day Israel won the most improbable battle of all and found their footing in the ancient homeland.
Larry Collins and Dominique Lapierre present the story with such vivid detail, it’s easy to mistake the book as historical fiction. It is not. Instead, it is simply one of the most amazing stories you’ll ever read … and every word is true!
