Customer Review

on 18 October 2010
Anyone who is interested in the politics and history of Israel will not be able to put this book down. The first half of this book, which deals with the period from the foundation of the State of Israel up to 1977, is gripping enough. But the second half, in which Avner paints his portrait of Menachem Begin, is utterly spellbinding. Begin is revealed as a man of immense integrity and intellect, a politician of rare pedigree who articulated the Zionist idea more passionately and more persuasively than anyone before or since. If it was one of Avner's goals to play a part in elevating Begin from controversial Israeli Prime Minister to one of the great heroes of Jewish history, then I believe he has succeeded.
