The old city of Jerusalem is under seige in February 1948. Food, fuel, and weapons are scarce. The U.S. arms embargo against the Jews is still in effect--although the British openly sell weapons to the Arabs. David Meyer is given a dangerous assignment--to hire pilots and buy planes that could fly to Palestine the instant statehood is declared. It could cost him his U.S. citizenship, and Ellie, his bride, would be in harm's way. David had signed up for the war, but not to carry the weight of a nation. Especially when betrayal swirls in the air.
The Zion Chronicles series covers the events surrounding Israel's statehood in 1948. Each book vividly portrays the intense struggle of the Jewish people in the aftermath of the Holocaust and the forces, within and without, which engulf the Middle East in conflict and controversy even today. Will there ever be peace in Zion? The Jewish people wonder as they stream into the British Mandate of Palestine after the devastation of World War II. What has happened to God's promises to their nation? These updated classics feature a new look and added study questions suitable for individual use or group discussion.
