    Additional Info
    This book tells the little-known stories of Jewish soldiers who served in the Jewish Legions during World War I. Three all-Jewish battalions formed in the British army as part of the Allies’ Middle East campaign, recruiting soldiers from the United States, Canada, England, and Argentina. Many of the soldiers were displaced immigrants or children of such immigrants, and they ranged widely in education level, social class, and combat experience. Together, they coalesced into the all-Jewish battalions that were bestowed the image of “liberators of the promised land.”

    The ranks of the Jewish Legions included some who would become prominent leaders, such as David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, and Yitzhak Ben-Zvi, Israel’s second president. This book focuses on the experiences of ordinary soldiers who fought alongside them. Drawing on diaries, memoirs and letters, the book follows their journey at sea through unrestricted submarine warfare; by trains and trucks through Europe, Egypt, and Palestine; and their battlefield experiences. The authors show how these Yiddish-speaking young men forged a new kind of soldier identity with unique Jewish features, as well as an evolving sense of nationalism.
