Description

Henry Gurney was the last Chief Secretary of the Mandate Government of Palestine. From mid-March to mid-May 1948, at his HQ in Jerusalem's King David Hotel, he wrote his diary under fire from Jews and Arabs alike, with both groups taking aim at the British Administration as the Mandate drew to a close and the country spiralled into violence.

Texte du rabat

This book deals with the last days of the British Empire in Palestine, December 1947 -- May 1948. The study based on the diary of the last Chief Secretary of the Mandate Government, Sir Henry Gurney. In many ways, Palestine of 1948 was a microcosm of the British Empire on the eve of its disappearance from the international arena.
