Produktbeschreibung
Winner of the National Jewish Book Award Winner of the Washington Institute Book Prize One of the Best Books of the Year St. Louis Post-Dispatch * Kirkus Reviews In this groundbreaking work, Bruce Hoffman-America's leading expert on terrorism-brilliantly re-creates the crucial thirty-year period that led to the birth of Israel. Drawing on previously untapped archival resources in London, Washington, D.C., and Jerusalem, Anonymous Soldiers shows how the efforts of two militant Zionist groups brought about the end of British rule in the Middle East. Hoffman shines new light on the bombing of the King David Hotel, the assassination of Lord Moyne in Cairo, the leadership of Menachem Begin, the life and death of Abraham Stern, and much else. Above all, he shows exactly how the underdog "anonymous soldiers" of Irgun and Lehi defeated the British and set in motion the chain of events that resulted in the creation of the formidable nation-state of Israel. One of the most detailed and sustained accounts of a terrorist and counterterrorist campaign ever written, Hoffman has crafted the definitive account of the struggle for Israel-and an impressive investigation of the efficacy of guerilla tactics. Anonymous Soldiers is essential to anyone wishing to understand the current situation in the Middle East.

Rezensionen
Riveting. . . . [A] thought-provoking book. The New York Times Book Review

Gripping. . . . Pathbreaking. The Wall Street Journal

Remarkable. . . . A magisterial history that is indispensable to anyone wishing to understand how and why the State of Israel came into existence. Foreign Affairs

Anonymous Soldiers does a wonderful job of elucidating this enormously complex and important period in Jewish history. Tablet

Indispensable. . . . A first-rate portrait. . . . [A] carefully researched and balanced treatment of the Jewish underground. . . . [Anonymous Soldiers] add[s] substantially to the contemporary debate about the aspirations, motivations and tactics of resistance movements, and the challenges inherent in addressing them. The Washington Post

One to read. . . . Those interested in the Arab-Israeli conflict will want this book in their library. . . . It s straightforward scholarship, written in an interesting style, and richly footnoted. St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A detailed chronicle. . . . What makes Anonymous Soldiers a valuable contribution to the historiography of the revolt is that Hoffman is the first scholar of the subject to fully utilize the many thousands of British intelligence documents from the 1940s that have been declassified in recent years. Haaretz

This book will become a classic on the shelf of those who seek to un­derstand and fight against non-state actors, who were themselves inspired by the Israeli example. Lawrence Wright, author of The Looming Tower and Thirteen Days in September

Gripping. . . . An even-handed work of history that is, at the same time, a morally illuminating and challenging work about the role of violence in politics. [Hoffman] also confronts us with the unsettling truth that sometimes, and especially when the adversary is a democracy that has lost its will to fight, terrorism will succeed. Jewish Journal

This is the most important book for years on the prehistory of the state of Israel. . . . It is an invaluable contribution to the history of political violence and counterterrorism, shedding new light on conditions in which terrorism succeeds and when it fails. Walter Laqueur, author of A History of Zionism

A deftly written account of the Jewish revolt against the British in 1940s Palestine. . . . A page-turner that leaves the reader feeling sorry once the book is finished. Washington Free Beacon

An excellent book. The Jewish Chronicle

Anonymous Soldiers is the best comprehensive study of the Jewish extremists terror/guerrilla campaign against the British in Palestine. It is also a fine case study of a modern insurgency and counterinsurgency, with lessons for all students of terrorist/urban guerrilla wars around the globe. Benny Morris, author of Righteous Victims

An authoritative, sweeping, important history. Kirkus (starred)

Drawing on prodigious research and employing fine narrative pacing, Hoffman has produced a first-rate work on the endgame in the Zionist struggle to establish a Jewish state. Publishers Weekly (starred)

Bruce Hoffman s magnum opus. . . . This is the definitive account of one of the key factors in the formation of Israel. Peter Bergen, author of Manhunt: The Ten-Year Search for Bin Laden from 9/11 to Abbottabad
