Outstanding personal view of the key events of Israel's statehood
23 April 2015 | by See all my reviews

I have just seen the second part of this wonderful series. Both parts are excellent. It is a personal view of an intelligent insider who attended many of the significant events of Israel's "rebirth" and coming of age. It is described with tact, as expected from a diplomat, insight and often humour. The footage is terrific. Not only do we meet the 5 Prime Ministers of Israel, each significant in his or her own way, but there are also vignettes with a number of American Presidents as well as Anwar Sadat who showed statesmanship and courage making an historic peace deal with Israel. This is a quality and entertaining documentary from a talented man who has left the world a fine, personal legacy. These films are not recommended for Israel bashers and anti-Semites.
