The End of the British Mandate for Palestine, 1948 : The Diary of Sir Henry Gurney Hardback
by Motti Golani
Part of the St Antony's Series series
Henry Gurney was the last Chief Secretary of the Mandate Government of Palestine.
From mid-March to mid-May 1948, at his HQ in Jerusalem's King David Hotel, he wrote his diary under fire from Jews and Arabs alike, with both groups taking aim at the British Administration as the Mandate drew to a close and the country spiralled into violence.
