9780752450223: Gods, Guns and Israel: Britain, the Jews and the First World War

The roots of today’s Middle East conflict are extremely deep and exceedingly tangled. Unraveling a complicated story, Jill Hamilton describes the background to the present conflict intertwined in the sad story of mistakes and broken promises is the age-old fascination that Jerusalem holds for Jews, Muslims, and Christians. New insights are given into the decisions taken by the key men in the British and American governments, and the effect on Old Testament beliefs on those decisions. Woven into the narrative is the story of David Ben-Gurion and the other soldiers in the Jewish Legion, following them from their first tottering steps on the moors of Devon, to their quarter century as members of the secret underground army, the Haganah, to May 1948 when Ben-Gurion read the Declaration of Independence of the new state of Israel.
