Dawn of the Promised Land

The Creation of Israel

Add To Cart
A brief history of the struggle for a Jewish state, from the British conquest of Palestine during WWI (1917) through Israel's War of Independence and its first year of nationhood (1949). Canadian journalist Wicks combed through memoirs by figures well known (e.g., Shimon Peres, who also wrote the introduction) and obscure, and intertwines them here with a narrative account of the history of the Jewish community in mandatory Palestine and the new state. Featuring autobiographical reports by individuals and testimonials. Inculding excerpts from some particularly vivid narratives about refugees' struggles before, during, and after the Holocaust to enter Palestine.
