In this episode, Matt Crawford speaks with author Boaz Dvir about his book Saving Israel. This is an unbelievable story about the effort to arm the newborn state of Israel in 1948. Surrounded by 5 well equipped and hostile neighbors Israel had no rifles, no ammunition, and no planes. Faced with an international arms embargo Israel had to turn to a communist Czechoslovakia for surplus Nazi weapons to defend itself. This is truly almost impossible to believe and will leave you turning the pages. I can't recommend this book enough!
