The exciting story of how the Jews, in the face of violent opposition of five Arab armies and Palestinian Arab guerrillas, and the implacable hostility and obstructive tactics of the British, ushered the State of Israel into being. Appreciate how, with only small arms and heroics, the Israelis desperately held off the Arab armies, which possessed modern heavy weapons; how the British blockaded the new state to prevent any weapons from reaching the Jews while at the same time supplying heavy arms and aircraft to the Arabs. How Jews in Israel and the United States, using guile and chutzpah, conspired to acquire heavy weapons and ship them into Israel despite the British blockade, in time to use for Israel's defense. Learn how the Israelis defied the powerful British Navy and secretly transported thousands of Jewish Holocaust survivors into Palestine. Read how Jewish Palestine leaders Ben Gurion, Chaim Weizmann, and former Milwaukee school teacher, Golda Meir, and others, overcame impossible odds to usher Israel into existence. Understand the importance of a Kansas City haberdasher, who convinced President Harry Truman to support the new state despite fierce objections of his own State Department,and British foreign Minister Ernest Bevin's vicious schemes to prevent the new state from coming into existence. Author's creative narrative of history puts you in the middle of the action.
