    One thought on “O Jerusalem!”

    1. One of the most beautifully written book on Israel Palestine conflict ever!This book won my heart!It was so comprehensive and surprisingly very very neutral!It is so detailed and meticulous: It can be a textbook for any class on this subject any given day!This book details the foundation of the great state of Israel and unlike many books written on the subject:Remains as objective and neutral as possible,the flow is very smooth,it feels like you're reading a thriller novel when you read it:)I co [...]

    2. Wow! Just completed this long book!!O Jerusalem deals with the Arab-Israeli war for Jerusalem during 1947-48, or also called as, the "War of Independence" by Israel. The book's narrative begins (apart from a Prologue) with the successful passing of the UN Partition Plan, of the Palestinian region under the British Mandate at that time, to form two separate States, on November 29, 1947. The book ends with the region's history as on July 17, 1948; along with an Epilogue.I so much loved the narrati [...]

    3. Well, coming to the Middle East, I can safely say I knew nothing of the history of the Israeli State beyond the fact that it existed and mostly Jewish people ran it. Staying here in Bethlehem for over a month meant we got a great deal of the Palestinian perspective on the Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza, but as far as the events that led to the creation of the State of Israel and the circumstances under which the Israeli Army eventually occupied those territories, no one was able to [...]

    4. This book documents the Jewish struggle to create the tiny state of Israel and the struggle of the Arabs and British to crush it, with particular focus on Jerusalem. It contains some interesting accounts and much interesting information, but it is not without its flaws.Beginning with the decision at the United Nations at Flushing Meadow to accept the re-partition of the Land of Israel into two states, one Jewish and one Arab, and the violent Arab reaction, it leaves out the fact the Britain's Pa [...]

    5. In the wake of the unrest in Syria and that part of the world and my growing interest in understanding the history behind this age old struggle, I picked up this book. This is an account of the war for the independence of Israel which focuses on the struggle between the British and the various Jewish and Moslem armies for Jerusalem. It is a very engaging narrative with a fairly unbiased viewpoint. The war has been described in very graphic detail- brace yourself. The small yet tenacious communit [...]

    6. The story of modern Israel's birth is so innately fascinating that it would be hard to tell in a boring way. The authors of this book, however, go above and beyond to make their account as riveting as any novel. I can only imagine the hundreds of hours spent gathering interviews for the countless personal portraits that make this history come to life.Israel in general, and Zionism in particular, is a fairly polarizing topic. To their credit, however, the authors exhibit little discernible bias t [...]

    7. Wonderfully written account of Israel's war for independence 1947 -48. What I particularly liked about it is the objective view of the conflict from all sides. Having just returned from Jerusalem, where I stayed right inside Jaffa's Gate, the descriptions of the fighting were very real to me.

    8. This book documents the Jewish struggle to create the tiny state of Israel and the struggle of the Arabs and British to crush it, with particular focus on Jerusalem. It contains some interesting accounts and much interesting information, but it is not without its flaws.Beginning with the decision at the United Nations at Flushing Meadow to accept the re-partition of the Land of Israel into two states, one Jewish and one Arab, and the violent Arab reaction, it leaves out the fact the Britain's Pa [...]

    9. Golda Meir says it right. This is how history should be written.My inspiration to pick this book up was primarily to read the history of which I have no intellectual or emotional connection. Everything I read in this book was new, and boy, by the end of it, I understand the modern world politics surrounding Israel much better. Ben-Gurion, Glub Pasha, Abdullah Tell, Shaltiel, Avriel and Golda have been perpetually added to the long list of historical figures who, in some way or the other, might i [...]

    10. This is an account of the war for the independence of Israel which focuses on the struggle between the British and the various Jewish and Moslem armies for Jerusalem. I was impressed by the effort made by the authors to be balanced, not painting any side as being totally good or bad.A older friend of mine, Andre, was involved in the events following this war, becoming himself an officer in the Israeli army during the war of independence. Polish and a communist, he fought in the southern army, ac [...]

    11. What a tremendous read at this 60th anniversary of the state of Israel. This book brings to life the tragedies and triumphs of the 1948 War in Palestine/Israel, depending on your point of view. A terrorist bomb of 55 gal drum filled with rusty nails, bolts and explosive set off amid shoppers and workers catching the bus back homee work of a Jewish terrorist group. Protecting the defeated fighters of an outpost from the crazed crowdse task of soldiers of the Arab Legion. This book tells the good [...]

    12. Donated to CCU 30/10/2014An utterly fascinating, minutely detailed and accurate definite history of the Israeli War of Independence 1948. Hundreds of vignettes make this book a thriller, with heartbreak and joy in rapid succession. Although it is history it reads like a who-done-it, and you turn page after page to see what happens next.Contains, maps, illustrations, b/w photographs, Chapter notes, Bibliography and index.

    13. I read O Jerusalem because I liked Freedom at Midnight by the same authors so much. Freedom at Midnight is definitely the better of the two. O Jerusalem feels much more clunky and following the plot and historical events was, at times, confusing for me. Also, the authors present themselves as unbiased, but are clearly biased in favor of Israel, which affects their presentation of facts. In one instance of recording Jewish atrocities committed during the beginning of partitioning, they are carefu [...]

    14. Classic, must read book, about the struggle and hope that eventually led to the birth of Israel. Rather than crying on who took whose land, it brings out the example of large unorganised & split group one one side and a small but fiercely determined group on the otherd all the mechanism of pull & push by other western powers. It also brings out the apathy shown by the middle east and arab rulers in coming to the aid of their bretherena costly mistake which they can never undo. On the oth [...]

    15. Kudüs ve Filistin tarihi ile ilgili dilimizde kaynak eser yok denecek kadar az, bu yüzden bu kitap dünyada olduğu kadar ülkemizde de popüler.Kitap İsrail'in kurulması ile başlayan dönemi cephe cephe, kahramanların ve olayların duygularını da içerecek şekilde detaylı olarak anlatmış. Bu yüzden benim gibi zor konsantre olanlar için takibi kolay değil. Kitabın tarafsız bir gözle yazıldığı kanaatindeyim. Tarafsız bir gözle olanları anlamak için iyi bir kaynak eser. K [...]

    16. You can also find this review on-wp/p7GC6G-27z“None of the men in the Egyptian Foreign Ministry really meant to be taken literally in threatening to ‘drive the Jews into the sea’. But they failed to remember that their foes had just seen six million of their kind driven into Hitler’s oven.”– (O Jerusalem!)Some countries fight for their freedom while some, like Israel, for their birth.I cannot even begin to tell you the gem this book, O Jerusalem!, is. With more than three years of i [...]

    17. Brilliant, brilliant book. This is my second book authored by Dominique Lapierre (City of Joy being the first one), and boy he does live up to his name. Apart from a visible attempt to document the circumstances accurately (one can never be too sure about history), this book brings to the fore the dilemmas, ambivalence and emotional and mental turmoil of the best politicians and generals of our times.The parts I liked the most are those which demonstrate how through their words, Arab monarchs bo [...]

    18. although it focuses on a tiny fragment and constricted geography of a centuries-old conflict, O Jerusalem! very precisely reflects why these two nations--Jews and Arabs--will never find a way to settle their differences on the path to peace.O Jerusalem! is a priceless and unique anthology of accounts reconstructed chronologically beginning on the day the UN approves the partitioning of Palestine and ends the day of the armistice between the two warring parties: Israel and the Arabs. The first ha [...]

    19. "This is how history, should be written" said Golda Meir on reading the book. And I agree with her. Always loved the books of Larry Collins and Domnique Lapierre, their accounts tend to be neutral, objective,well researched. Unlike Leon Uris Exodus, that is rather one sided in it's potrayal of the Arab-Israeli conflict, this book is more neutral, objective, looks at both sides. The events leading up to the formation of Israel are well documented, as also the struggles Jews faced in establishing [...]

    20. A well-researched and seemingly unbiased history of the 1948 birth of Israel. It was hard to read the graphic parts—after all, it was a war. I learned a lot about the beginning of Israel and my respect for the Jews grew—they had great tenacity and ingenuity. I also better understand the Arabs and their plight. Many of the Jews and Arabs were friends and neighbors before the awful war. It's sad that when they were displaced after the war, they were ignored by the neighboring Arab countries. I [...]

    21. This is an excellent book, one I want for my permanent library. It tells the story of the creation of the State of Israel together with the determination, suffering and personal sacrifice of those who accomplished it. It is well written and documented. It is a testament of the few and many who did all that was necessary to bring into being dreams that were thousands of years old.

    22. O Jerusalem is yet another proof of Collins and Lapierre's amazing skills of narration. They remind us once again that there is a story in history. A gripping narrative, quite unbiased (although not completely), painstakingly recreates the events around the birth of Israel, with a dramatic flair that is typical of the pair.

    23. Ho trovato questo libro molto interessantemi ha fatto conoscere nel particolare eventi che conoscevo solo in generale .E' un libro scritto con grande competenza, precisione e imparzialità.Lo consiglio vivamente a chi da profano vuole approcciarsi all'argomento.

    24. One of the greatest books ever written!! The story of Jews coming back to their homeland and how they built a nation brick by brick!

    25. I don't think any war book can come as close to this book, in terms of research and neutrality. I would certainly count it amongst the best books I've read so far. History has become my escape now.

    26. O Jerusalem is a detailed account of the Arab- Israeli war in 1947-1948 for Jerusalem and Israel’s statehood upon the partitioning of Palestine into two states, Jewish and Arab, by the UN. An Arab state was ultimately rejected by the Arabs who refused to recognize Israel’s birth in the post Holocaust of 6 million Jews when the world community was at its most sympathetic. The buildup of both sides to the date of the British mandate in Palestine expiring reflects the difficulties posed by the [...]

    27. Eroi e martiri per pochi palmi di deserto Ottimo esempio di divulgazione storica fatta bene: il primo anno della storia di Israele raccontato dagli occhi di Gerusalemme (attentati, tragedie, assedi e bombardamenti). Grazie ad un encomiabile lavoro sulle fonti, Lapierre e Collins sanno tenerci incollati alle pagine e partecipare alle incredibili vite dei primi coloni ebrei e alla loro solitaria e testarda lotta per un proprio stato. C'è comunque equilibrio nel rappresentare anche le ragioni degl [...]
