Gershom Gorenberg: The Secret War against the Nazis for the Middle East
February 8 6pm  Cowell Ranch Hay Barn
At the midpoint of World War II, an Axis army under Field Marshal Erwin Rommel was on the brink of conquering the Middle East. Drawing on his latest book, War of Shadows, historian Gershom Gorenberg will reveal the espionage affair that led to the British victory against Rommel at El Alamein – turning the tide of the war and preventing the mass murder of the Jews of Egypt, Palestine and the rest of the Middle East.

Gorenberg previously wrote three critically acclaimed books on Israel's history and politics - The Unmaking of Israel, The Accidental Empire: Israel and the Birth of the Settlements, 1967-1977, and The End of Days: Fundamentalism and the Struggle for the Temple Mount. He co-authored Shalom Friend, a biography of Yitzhak Rabin and winner of  the National Jewish Book Award. He has written for The New York Times Magazine, Atlantic Monthly and The New York Review of Books and in Hebrew for Haaretz.
He lives in Jerusalem, except during stints teaching a workshop on writing history at the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism.
