Here are the stories of three different men - a journalist, a scientist, an a labor leader - who shared the same seemingly impossible dream. They were determined to create a Jewish state in the land God promised for Abraham and his descendants - land the Jews had been exiled from nearly two thousand years ago. They faced towering obstacles and dramatic setbacks. Yet they prevailed. How? Spanning nearly ninety years and many significant world events, this concise history tells the tale of the creation of the state of Israel through the lives of the three men. Theodor Herzl, Chaim Weizmann, and David Ben-Gurion at times disagreed - even vehemently - but each needed the other two in order to accomplish a common goal. 'A Promise Fulfilled' shows how events built on one another - how the way one crisis was handled influenced the way next played out. It is essential reading, not just for the understanding how the nation of Israel came to be, but for the insight into the controversy and crises that surround this country today.
