Military historian Bishop chronicles the murder of militant Zionist Avraham Stern, leader of the notorious Stern Gang—more appropriately known as Lehi, a Hebrew acronym for Fighters for the Freedom of Israel—in 1942 Palestine. He was killed (some witnesses say in cold blood) by the British colonial policeman charged with capturing him owing to his group's terrorist activities. Bishop looks for the truth while showing that the murder ended the possibility of British, Arab, and Jewish reconciliation in the area. Rumored: a film on this subject, directed by Michael Winterbottom, with Colin Firth, Matthew Macfadyen, and Jim Sturgess attached.
