One of the most important events in the 20th century was the birth of the State of Israel in 1948. One of the most popular books about the battle between Jews and Arabs was O Jerusalem, a work of historical fiction by Collins and LaPierre. It is recommended reading for all. A movie based on the book and with the same title is coming out on October 17 and you can see the trailer here (and the official website is here). It’s hard to tell from a trailer whether the movie will be fair to the book or to the historical reality, and the movie is rated “R” for “some war scenes.” If nothing else, it makes me want to re-read the book.
