Summary
Fighting continues in the third volume of the Zion Legacy series, the day-by-day, blow-by-blow account of Israel becoming a nation in 1948. Most characters return from the previous novels, including the hapless couple Jacob and Lori Kalner. Jacob becomes a hero in this installment, having led the fight to defend Jerusalem from the Arab Legion--a gallant and successful fight. And yet the determination of Jordanian King Abdallah--seeking almost willfully a Pyrrhic victory--brings Jerusalem back into Arab hands. Thus a note of despair is interjected, at least if you are rooting for the Israelis, and the highly partisan Thoenes make it impossible not to do so. As in Thunder from Jerusalem [BKL S 15 00), the previous novel, aerial combat steals the show, this time for pilot David Mayer, who rams Israel's one Messerschmitt down the Egyptian throat. Love affairs continue on hold, as does the fate of young Daoud, the Arab-Jewish boy uncertain where to place his loyalties. This is a fast-paced, irresistible novel, but at the end of it, the fighting seems exactly where it was at the beginning
