    Diskin’s Lone Wolf is a fictionalized account of pre-Independence Israel and the armed struggle against the British, who for political reasons, were determined to keep thousands of Holocaust survivors who had no home left in the charred ruins of Europe from returning to their ancestral homeland. This story will certainly remind readers of Uris’ classic novel Exodus, but it tells a very different story.The main protagonist of the novel is Davi...

    When I saw this book on Net Galley, it intrigued me. I had read books taking place in British Mandate Palestine, but I hadn't seen this sort of focus before. Since it was a Read Now book, I was able to download it right away. So when publicist Wiley Saichek asked me if I wanted to review it, I said that I already had a copy for review.Although Lone Wolf in Jerusalem is primarily a thriller, I find myself wanting to discuss characters. I loved Sho...

    I read this book, cover to cover, in one transatlantic flight. I can count on one hand the number of books that I devoured so quickly. The author, Ehud Diskin did an incredible job of research and successfully recreated and ipmeccable scenery of the last days of the British mandate in Jerusalem. The storyline is chanting, full of action and adrenalin. The hero, David is fighting the young nation's fight for independence, on his terms, and fightin...

    Drama, adventure, romance and WWII traumatic memories. The popular novel in Israel, Lone Wolf in Jerusalem, by the decorated IDF colonel Ehud Diskin, wisely uses the troubled political and security landscape in Israel during the British Mandate to recreate vivid stories of the Jewish resistance in the Holy Land. The main character is David Gabinsky, a former member of the resistance against the Germans in Belarus, shortly landed in the 'home of t...

    This book really got me. This is the first time I had read a book that dealt with the British in Israel. I had read the cold hard facts before, but this story presented it from the personal viewpoint of David, the main character. I could understand his anger at the British for stopping the ships with the Holocaust survivors on board. I could understand how a man that had fought the Nazi's would see the British as the enemy. Through the main chara...

    This was a hard book to read in more ways than one for me. A good book in that it covers a lot of information about a time and facts that most people, myself included know either nothing or very little about, and that is sad and wrong!The "novel" parts were often not to my liking but the sheer volume of information made this well worth the read!I actually ended up with two copies of this book! An e-copy from the Publisher and NetGalley to review ...

    This book gave me three things: mystery, suspense and vengeance.Well, if you are David, then you know what it means to lose everyone you love at the hand of the Nazis and you also know a thing or two about stealth and attacking your enemy. Better yet, you know how to blend in without losing sight of your goal.Thanks for the eARC Netgalley, I got to be in David's world, to fight his battles and the author made sure I held my breath every time he w...

    Amazing story set in post WWII Israel during the British occupation. The main character, David, takes action against the British along with other Jewish groups to convince the British to leave Israel. The story is full of action, suspense and romance. Very entertaining and gripping. I highly recommend for a great read. I won this book in AGoodReads Giveaway.

    From a historical perspective, combined with Diskin's military background, this combined to make a period thriller that was difficult to put down. The character development of David and Shoshana car the book. The emotions of the moment, the history are clear. The dialogue between characters seems almost too simple at time but the pace of the story is riveting.

    Extremely interesting, breath taking with anticipation!A very interesting historical view of how a single person can over come extreme odds and emerge triumphant. David suffered many losses in his young life but did not give up. I learned much about the struggles of the Jewish people and the strength they show to the world.

    A very eye opening look at historical events. I recieved this book in a Goodreads giveaway. Everyone should read this to get a new perspective on the history of Israel. It shows a first hand view of how some Jews came to Israel. And, provides a story that encourages a more in depth look at history.
