About This Item

London: Macmillan, 1992. First UK edition. Hardcover. Good/very good. The dramatic and largely unknown story of the rescue of more than 2-million Jews from Eastern Europe, North Africa and the Middle East since World War II. Provides in-depth accounts of missions such as Operation Magic Carpet (Yemen), Operation Framework (Morocco), Operation Moses (Ethiopia) and the network that helped Jews - with Kurdish aid - escape from Iran after Khomeini's Islamic revolution in 1979. Here are the backroom details of the money-for-blood deals made with Adolph Eichmann, Nicolae Ceaucescu and Saddam Hussein. The author combines narrative history with investigative journalism at its best, illuminating a remarkable saga that is both compellingly told and of outstanding importance to 20th Century history. Size, 24 x 16cm, 328 pages, 8 pages of b&w photos and 2 maps. Ex-library, front endpaper removed, some library markings. Black cloth boards in very good illustrated dust jacket. Internally, good: hint of tanning at page margins, otherwise clean and unmarked in excellent bindings. Exceptional condition for ex-library example.
