Just after midday on July 22, 1946, Zionist terrorists, under the leadership of Menachem Begin, set the fuses on bombs planted in the basement of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem. At 12:37 a huge explosion ripped through the building, killing 91 people. Among the dead were 25 Britons, 41 Arabs, and 17 Jews. The echoes of that explosion are still being heard today.

    This is actually written fairly well and I hate people who automatically rate a book based on their political views, but this gets marked down because it is so blatantly sympathetic towards the Irgun terrorists on many levels that it is almost as if it is a direct state produced work of propaganda. The author refuses to refer to any of the Palestinian residents as such, referring to them only as "Arabs"; always condemning their actions, putting them square in the blame for historical antagonism, This is actually written fairly well and I hate people who automatically rate a book based on their political views, but this gets marked down because it is so blatantly sympathetic towards the Irgun terrorists on many levels that it is almost as if it is a direct state produced work of propaganda. The author refuses to refer to any of the Palestinian residents as such, referring to them only as "Arabs"; always condemning their actions, putting them square in the blame for historical antagonism, then excusing away when the Zionist terrorists actively kill police officers, state officials and plot to blow up the seat of government.

    Although I’ve known about the story of the King David Hotel bombing for years and have read about it before (albeit in less detail), I was sitting at the edge of my seat as I was reading this: a sign of a book well written. The author makes this heart-wrenching incident come alive by deftly weaving human drama with historical facts and in the process provides a dispassionate condemnation of terrorism. It’s a well researched, pretty even-handed book which I found particularly interesting for its Although I’ve known about the story of the King David Hotel bombing for years and have read about it before (albeit in less detail), I was sitting at the edge of my seat as I was reading this: a sign of a book well written.

It’s a well researched, pretty even-handed book which I found particularly interesting for its insights into the dynamics among the different Jewish terrorist groups that operated during the British Mandate period in Palestine and their relationship to the British authorities, as well as the psychology and ideology of their members. The only disappointment was the lack of a full list of the victims, perhaps in an appendix.
