Description - Major Farran's Hat by Dr David Cesarani
The gripping true story of the murder, in Palestine in 1947, of a Jewish activist by a British counter-terrorist officer and the subsequent cover-up.
In May 1947 a Jewish teenager was mysteriously abducted in Jerusalem. He was never seen alive again. A grey felt hat found at the scene was traced to Major Roy Farran, a highly decorated ex-SAS officer leading a covert counter-terrorist squad. Farran was acquitted after a sensational court martial and came home to a hero's welcome. But the Zionist underground swore vengeance. It had already penetrated British homeland security. Now it sent its top man after Farran.This story of violence, cover ups and expediency reveals the full extent and ambition of Jewish terrorist attacks on Britain and throws light on Britain's legacy in the Middle East, with remarkable echoes of today's War on Terror.
