This book deals with the last days of the British Empire in Palestine, December 1947 -- May 1948. The study based on the diary of the last Chief Secretary of the Mandate Government, Sir Henry Gurney. In many ways, Palestine of 1948 was a microcosm of the British Empire on the eve of its disappearance from the international arena.
