Description
Here the author of Voyage of the Damned gives us a fast-paced, riveting chronicle of Jewish refugees desperately seeking a home after World War II, and how their flight to Palestine on the rechristened steamer Exodus 1947, despite a British blockade, created an international incident that gained sympathy for the formation of Israel. Following a history of the ship itself (it had served at D-Day as the USS President Warfield) Gordon Thomas details the secret plans to purchase the Exodus, the violent British seizure of the overloaded ship that resulted in three deaths, the refusal of the passengers to disembark in France and their subsequent hunger strike, and the cruel twist of fate that sent them back to camps in Germany.
