Look inside the book:
A few others spoke, and then I again addressed the meeting and said I thought it was a good thing the Government had not left it to the community to form a Jewish Regiment, for I saw that they would never agree; but, as the Government had already made up its mind, and was determined to have a Jewish Legion of some kind, I begged them to lay aside all differences and help me to make a success of a movement which was bound to affect Jews, one way or another, throughout the world.
...If they feared that these Jews from Russia and Poland would not worthily uphold Jewish traditions, they might have gone to the Secretary for War and told him their fears, and said that, as it was absolutely necessary for world Jewry that this experiment of creating Jewish Battalions should have a fair chance, they would request his aid in this matter, and ask that at least twenty-five per cent. of every battalion be composed of Jews from England, who, having seen service in France, would therefore give some necessary and valuable stiffening to these raw Jewish units.
About J. H. (John Henry) Patterson, the Author:
With his reputation, livelihood and safety at stake, Patterson, an experienced tiger hunter from his military service in India, undertook an extensive effort to deal with the crisis and after months of attempts and near misses, finally killed the first lion on the night of December 9, 1898 and killed the second one on the morning of December 29 (narrowly escaping death when he was charged by the wounded animal).
...Blyth amid rumours of murder and an affair, and although he was never officially charged or censured, this incident would follow him for years afterward in British society, and was most notably referenced in the film The Macomber Affair (1947) which was based on Ernest Hemingway's adaptation of the incident. It is often thought that it was this incident (along with the anti-semitic issues he encountered from the British military establishment during World War I - when he was in command of the Jewish Legion) which led Patterson to eventually disassociate himself from British society and ally himself with those of the Jewish faith and their pursuit of a permanent homeland.
