Opis produktu:

• The amazing true story of an emerging nation and its naval force

This action-packed tale focuses on a young U.S. Naval Academy graduate who helped create the Israeli Navy and led it into battle at the onset of Israel’s War of Independence in 1948. J. Wandres’s book is the first to record the crucial role played by Paul Shulman in the formation of the new nation, and in doing so, he provides a unique window on Israel’s history and its relations with the United States. Following his WWII service on a U.S. Navy destroyer, Shulman resigned his commission to help smuggle Holocaust survivors into Palestine. By early 1948, at the age of twenty-six, he was training officers for a new Israeli Navy.

The author draws on interviews and correspondence with those who knew Shulman, Israeli and American archives and declassified secret U.S. State Department documents to tell this riveting story.

J. Wandres is a retired U.S. Navy public affairs specialist who has edited two award-winning magazines. He lives in Aberdeen, NJ.
