An insightful history of Churchill s lifelong commitment both public and private to the Jews and Zionism, and of his outspoken opposition to anti-Semitism. Winston Churchill s commitment to Jewish rights, to Zionism, and ultimately to the State of Israel never wavered. In 1922, he established on the bedrock of international law the right of Jews to emigrate to Palestine. During his meeting with David Ben-Gurion in 1960, Churchill presented the Israeli prime minister with an article he had written about Moses, praising the patriarch. In between these events he fought harder and more effectively for the Jewish people than the world has ever realized. Drawing on a wide range of archives and private papers, speeches, newspaper coverage, and wartime correspondence, Churchill s official biographer, Sir Martin Gilbert, explores the origins, implications, and results of Churchill s determined commitment to Jewish rights, opening a window on an underappreciated and heroic aspect of the brilliant politician s life and career."
