My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the first book of the saga “The Hope and the Glory”.
Through the main characters, such as Zev Barak and Joseph Blumenthal (nicknamed “Don Kishote”), the author portrays several real-life Israeli leaders: David Ben-Gurion, Moshe Dayan, Golda Meir, Mickey Marcus, Yigael Yadin, Ariel Sharon, Motta Gur, among others.
David Ben-Gurion with Yigal Allon and Yitzhak Rabin in the Negev, during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War.
Even if it’s a novel of fiction, the entwinement between fiction and real history gives us a real impression of all historical facts covered by this book.
The sequel of this book is The Glory.
