Description by OLDIES.com:
This historical documentary details the origins, birth and remarkable survival of the modern State of Israel against overwhelming odds. Emerging from the ashes of Hitler's holocaust, the surviving Jews of Europe sought refuge in Palestine, and tens of thousands of refugees poured in each year. In 1948, the State Of Israel declared its independence. Almost immediately, the five surrounding Arab nations united to annihilate the fledgling Jewish state. The remarkable military achievements that brought victory over their enemies and engineering feats that turned a desert wasteland into a prosperous nation are depicted here. This fascinating and inspirational motion picture chronicles a nation's monumental struggle to survive. Narrated by Steven Hill.
The perseverance and courage of Israel is examined in this look at the development of their mighty military in the face of their enemies.
