Dan  Diner - The Other War


A wholly new perspective on the Second World War

The Other War is an anatomy of the Second World War, approached from a different perspective: at the centre of events stands Jewish Palestine, situated at the crossroads of European and extra-European colonial perspectives, during the period starting in 1935 with the Abyssinian War, and ending with the battles of El Alamein and Stalingrad in 1942.

The interlacing of two very different conflicts – the Second World War and the fight for Palestine – forms the heart of this dramatic story, and threads itself through the whole book. The result is a densely woven, multi-faceted tapestry of events that links up the European main event of the Second World War with the history of the Middle East.

"In typical fashion, Dan Diner shows how complicated, disparate or opposing historical lines of conflict are condensed into one event. An intellectually exceedingly dense narrative."

Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
