Well written and easy to read, almost like a novel. I wish there was a little more explanation of who certain people were, but overall this is an excellent book about the mandate period of Palestine. It covers the period between the British invasion and the fall of the Ottoman Empire to the British pull-out in 1948.

ספר מרתק, אבל רע, ומרגיש. כתוב תוך צמידות רבה מדי למקורות ובלי שום ניסיון לתאר את התמונה כולה. מדגיש את התכונות הרעות של ב"ג ומעלים את זכויותיו. מבהיר לחלוטין שהתנועה הציונית לידתה בחטא ושמעולם לא היה בציונות שמאל אמיתי.

One Palestine, Complete explores the tumultuous period before the creation of the state of Israel. This was the time of the British Mandate, when Britain's promise to both Jews and Arabs that they would inherit the land, set in motion the conflict that haunts the region to this day.

A nice account of the life of the world's most famous Nazi hunter. It is sad to note that he was later embroiled in controversies he could have avoided, one of which at least cost him the Nobel Peace Prize.
