The Hope - Herman Wouk

Hodder & Stoughton, 1994, Hardback in Dust Wrapper.

From the cover: “The Hope is the new State of Israel and Herman Wouk has brought all his powerful skills as novelist and historian to celebrate that hope through its first two decades of beleaguered existence. The Hope lives off the pages of post-war history from Moshe Dayan’s flamboyant dash through Ramle in the War of Independence, and the political minefields of Suez, to the triumph of the Six-Day War. The story shifts between Israel and Paris, Washington, New York and Los Angeles, from knife-edge debates in the Security Council to the cockpit of a Mirage jet fighter over Sharm el Sheikh and the euphoria of reclaiming the Old City of Jerusalem.”

Size: 9½" x 6¼". Blue boards with Gilt titling to the Spine. 693 pages.
