            The 1948 War of Independence was fought from the Galilee to the Negev against native and invading Arab armies. The Israelis built, organized, and somehow equipped the first Jewish Army in two thousand years, with its nucleus being members of Britain's Jewish Brigade. Colorful leaders such as Ben-Gurion and Moshe Dayan, the Mufti of Jerusalem and King Abdullah, determined the course of the war. This session will analyze the role of these leaders and the battles during the war. Israeli courage and skill produced victory, of a sort.
