Commentary to the Book of Joshua and Judges By Rabbi Chaim Dov Rabinowitz Edited by Shalom Kaplan Translated by: Rabbi S. Carmel (552 Pages)Publisher: H. Vagshal Publishing, 2004 Part of the "Da'ath Sofrim - Prophets" series.
The Da'ath Sofrim, here translated into English, is a lucid and outstanding commentary on the the Books of Joshua and Judges.
From the publisher:
The Book of Joshua opens with G-d's message to Joshua, in which he is instructed how to lead the Jewish people in general, and specifically during this period of transition. The book closes with the prophet's urging the people to cling to G-d and to follow His ways, and to preserve their uniqueness among the other nations. ... The Book of Judges picks up where the Book of Joshua leaves off, with the Jewish people having taken possession of well-stocked cities and developed agricultural fields, in the assumption that with G-d's help, they would attain their destined role as a light to mankind.
