Customer Review

on 1 February 2007
This is a greatly detailed and interesting history of the State of Israel (a fascinating coutry) from its earliest origins in the 19th Century with the Zionist pioneers carving out a safe home in the Negev or Gaillee away from persecution, through independence and the various wars to the present day.

Israel has one of the most interesting histories possible and Gilbert has captured in the pages of this great book all the incidents, wars, characters, events, peoples, etc that go to make up any country in a very readable, enjoyable, accessible way.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Israel and the Middle east.
