This monumental book tells the full story of the first Arab-Israeli was and the birth of the State of Israel. Based largely on some 1,000 interviews with participants of all nations, it describes the important military and diplomatic events from battles to clandestine operations, with anecdotes and glimpses of great figures and of the ordinary people who did the fighting - concentration camp survivors, sabras, foreign volunteers and Arabs from throughout the Middle East. This is the great conflict that both set the stage for the present-day Israeli nation and is so crucial to the understanding of the state.
