There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later. I used to be rabidly anti-Israel and accuse them of war crimes and genocide against the Palestinians. Then I read this book upon recommendation of an Israeli person I trust, and basically got a lesson on the history of the current situation over there. Now I realize I was the victim of obvious propaganda. This book is a great, impartial look at historical facts. It's easy to read and clearly written.
I learned so much by reading it, and it all can be verified easily by referencing the original sources in the end notes. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants some depth of understanding of Israel. One person found this helpful. Very enjoyable book following the lives of these heroic figures during WWI.

How Lawrence of Arabia and a Jewish agronomist from Palestine mapped the land and conflicts of the modern Middle East In the turmoil of the First World War, while the Great Powers secretly plotted the future of the Middle East, a second lieutenant from Oxfordshire and a Jewish agronomist from Palestine audaciously imagined new nations—Arab and Jewish—rising from the ashes of the Ottoman Empire.
Lawrence and Aaronsohn by Ronald Florence | zuqivuxuki.tk
Lawrence, who would later become the iconic Lawrence of Arabia, used his assignment of coordinating Arab support for British war strategies to advance the dreams of an Arab state. Aaron Aaronsohn gave up a distinguished career in science and, with his sister Sarah, established a secret spy network in wartime Palestine, providing the intelligence that enabled the British victory over the Turks. Their arguments in wartime Cairo and at the Peace Conference in Paris presaged the political battles of the Middle East today.
In this gripping narrative history, Ronald Florence resurrects the exploits and sacrifices of an unsung Zionist hero, deconstructs the legend of Lawrence of Arabia, and provides new perspectives on the origins of the Arab-Israeli conflict.
