In 1917 it was their salvation, blocking the British army's assault and its drive into Palestine." "After two British defeats, in 1917 General Allenby led a multinational army in a final attack on the outnumbered Turkish forces. Yet the Turks almost thwarted Lloyd George's ambition to capture Jerusalem by Christmas. John Grainger examines all aspects, even biblical, of the campaign and the British army's ultimate victory - a victory that brought in its wake a complex set of problems: British rule in Palestine, Jewish immigration, terrorism, the Israel/Palestine problem, the intifada, and, full circle, Gaza again."--Jacket." ;
