The Venice Sketchbook - Rhys Bowen - A Short Summary and Review

I Am Cyrus: Harry Truman and the Rebirth of Israel - Craig Von Buseck - A Short Summary & Review

 


A short summary of I Am Cyrus:

The story behind the rebirth of the modern state of Israel.

My favorite quote by Harry Truman about Israel:

"I had faith in Israel before it was established, I have faith in it now."


Questions to ponder while reading the book:

How should the re-creation of a state be accomplished?

Have you ever wanted to go to the Holy Land?

My review of I Am Cyrus:

An engrossing, well-researched read.

I did not realize there was Arab-Nazi collusion.

I hope to visit Israel someday.
