Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
07/01/2014
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.
Max Hastings
“I know of no more thoughtful nor yet more moving study of their achievement.”
James Holland
“No one reading this book can possibly doubt the heroism of those involved…there can’t be a finer history.”
Daily Telegraph (London) on FIGHTER BOYS
“As a vivid chronicle of who the Battle of Britain pilots were, what motivated them, and why they were ultimately successful, Fighter Boys is unsurpassed.”
