The Arab-Israeli Conflict : The Palestine War 1948, Paperback

The Arab-Israeli Conflict : The Palestine War 1948 Paperback

Part of the Essential Histories series


An examination of the Palestine War of 1948 and its progression through two distinct stages: the guerrilla warfare between the Arab and Jewish communities of Mandatory Palestine, and the conventional inter-state war between the State of Israel and the invading Arab armies.

It assesses the participants, their war aims, strategies and combat performance.

Finally, it explores the reasons for Israel's success in the face of seemingly impossible odds and for the failure of the Arab nations to turn their military and numerical superiority into victory on the ground.
