    O Jerusalem! is the epic drama of 1948, when Arabs and Jews fought for control of the city of Jerusalem. This story traverses centuries and continents, covering the time between WWII and the creation of the independent state of Israel. Based on five years of intensive research and thousands of interviews, this is a story of courage, terrorism, heroism, and ultimately, war.

    "o boring!"
    Overall

    Told from the Jewish perspective, but trying to be balanced it uncovers the human stories behind the events of the founding of Israel and the beginning of the struggle that continues today. I wish it could have provided more background. The story is hard to follow, as it's just a large number of individual accounts, rather than one person trying to create tell a cohesive story. It has its moments, but I wouldn?t recommend it, unless you really want to know what it was like living in Jerusalem during that time. I would have preferred something with more context.

    Charlie Wilson's War is the untold story behind the last battle of the Cold War and how it fueled the rise of militant Islam. George Crile tells how Charlie Wilson, a maverick congressman from east Texas, conspired with a rogue CIA operative to launch the biggest, meanest, and most successful covert operation in the agency's history.
