Nominated for the Leipzig Book Fair Award 2021
This book tells the anatomy of World War II from an unusual perspective: at the center of the action is Jewish Palestine, situated at the intersection of European continental and non-European colonial perceptions. The core of this spatial-historical narrative lies between the Abyssinian War of 1935 and the battles of El Alamein and Stalingrad in 1942. The interweaving of two separate wars – the Second World War and the struggle for Palestine – constructs the actual drama of the narrative and runs through the book as a common thread. The result is a dense fabric of event facets, which in the globally portrayed major event of the Second World War, through a special perspective, allows hitherto little-noticed contours to emerge
