Gershom Gorenberg presents War of Shadows

March 14, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Author Gershom Gorenberg will be speaking at CBE about his new book, War of Shadows: Code Breakers, Spies, and the Secret Struggle to Drive the Nazis from the Middle East. Based on documents that remained classified for decades, War of Shadows demolishes myths of World War II and solves the mystery of the spy affair that nearly brought Rommel’s army and SS death squads to Cairo and Jerusalem.

Gorenberg’s previous book was The Unmaking of Israel, a provocative examination of Israeli history and the crisis of Israeli democracy. “Until I read The Unmaking of Israel,” wrote novelist Michael Chabon, “I didn’t think it could be possible to feel more despairing, and then more terribly hopeful, about Israel.” You won’t want to miss it!
