Jews and the military : a history by Derek J Penslar Book 5 editions published between and in English and held by WorldCat member libraries worldwide "Jews and the Military is the first comprehensive and comparative look at Jews' involvement in the military and their attitudes toward war from the s until the creation of the state of Israel in Derek Penslar shows that although Jews have often been described as people who shun the army, in fact they have frequently been willing, even eager, to do military service, and only a minuscule minority have been pacifists.
Penslar demonstrates that Israel's military ethos did not emerge from a vacuum and that long before the state's establishment, Jews had a vested interest in military affairs. Penslar culminates with a study of Israel's War of Independence as a Jewish world war, which drew on the military expertise and financial support of a mobilized, global Jewish community. He considers how military service was a central issue in debates about Jewish emancipation and a primary indicator of the position of Jews in any given society.
