The extraordinary early struggles of Jewish and Christian heroes to establish the State of Israel.
The courageous exploits of Palestinian Jews and Christian Zionists are featured in true tales that reveal the human frailties and strengths of heroes.
This epic book covers the sweep of events a hundred years ago that led to the advancement after 2000 years of the promise of a National Jewish Home in Palestine.
The reader will meet amazing characters including Richard Meinertzhagen, the Christian Zionist James Bond, Zeev Jabotinsky whose persistence led to the introduction of a Jewish force within the British army, Colonel John Patterson who relived the spirit of the Bible as he led a Jewish force into battle to help liberate the Holy Land from the Ottoman Turks, the intelligence of Aaron Aaronsohn who provided Allenby with the ability to march through Palestine and the heroism of his sister, Sarah Aaaronsohn, who led a Jewish spy ring in a dangerous mission to provide vital intelligence to the British under the noses of the Turkish enemy. This book recounts her painful fate and leaves us with the enigma of Sarah and Lawrence of Arabia who is portrayed in a manner rarely revealed.
'1917. From Palestine to the Land of Israel' reveals the heroes and the villains that both forged the way to the creation of Israel but also lit the undercurrent of violent Jew-hating rejection that has plagued the Middle East until today.
