The Bay Psalm Book was the first book printed in British North America. The translations are not particularly polished, and not one has remained in use, although some of the tunes to which they were sung have survived (for instance, "Old 100th").

In response to this event, the Israeli government authorized Opeation Defensive Shield, sending Israeli infantry to recapture some of the same West Bank towns and cities that had been turned over to the Palestinian Authority only a few years before - and which had since become the springboard for suicide bombers intent on murdering Israeli civilians.

In 2002, Israeli soldiers bravely fought against terrorists in the city of Jenin. A few weeks afterwards, Brett Goldberg interviewed many men who fought there, and this book is the result.

A surprisingly large number of words have been written about the battle by people who truly ought to have read this book first.

In World War Two, many Jews died because they had no army to fight with. Israelis can all be proud of the fight they put up in Jenin only six decades later when attacked by the same types of thugs.

For those of us who live in far off America, this book makes for very interesting reading. It is inspiring to see that people can be honest and ethical even in wartime. And I certainly share the anger of the soldiers at those who criticized Israel and its army for defending the lives of its people.

In March 2002 Israel experienced one of the worst waves of terrorist attack in the nation's history, during which over two hundred Israelis were killed and hundreds more injured in suicide bombings and shootings. These attacks culminated with an attack on Netanya's Park Hotel during a Passover Seder - which left another thirty dead and many more injured. In response to this event, the Israeli government authorized Opeation Defensive Shield, sending Israeli infantry to recapture some of the same West Bank towns and cities that had been turned over to the Palestinian Authority only a few years before - and which had since become the springboard for suicide bombers intent on murdering Israeli civilians.

A Psalm in Jenin recounts the stories of the Israeli soldiers, many of them reservists, who were tasked with recapturing the city of Jenin. Based on his interviews with the Israelis who who fought in the bitter house-by-house, street-by-street battles, author Brett Goldberg has woven a tale of the emotional trauma, and personal struggle that the Israeli soldiers had to endure. This book offers a rare, gripping account of what it means to be a humane army, struggling to both root out the terrorist cells, and yet also maintain their high moral standards and minimize the death toll among the civilian population.

The author does not spare us the details. His descriptions of the devastation and death are raw, and uncut. Brett Goldberg's book will remain a haunting window into the horror and reality of war for many years to come.

I read this book two years ago, when it first came out, and many times over the ensuing months, suggested that Amazon list the offering. I am glad to see that the requests finally succeeded.

This is an amazing book, about bravery and courage, and valor in the face of terror. In order to spare civilian lives, the Israel Defense Forces went into Jenin with hand to hand combat, rather than bomb the known and suspected bomb factories from the air. True to form, these factories were placed strategically in the midst of a dense civilian population.

But the IDF paid heavily for its valor, when they met up in streets and alleys with children suicide bombers and booby trapped houses. Twenty-three IDF soldiers died as a consequence of IDF concern for life.

This book contains the stories of those men, and their comrades, in their own words and in terms of their lives. If you want to see the human face of Israel and its soldiers, read this book.

Brett Goldberg does a spectacular job in describing the battle for the Jenin refugee camp from the perspective of some of the IDF servicemen who fought there. As others point out, this book is a stunning view of humanity and Israeli resolve.

From a military historian's point of view this is excellent secondhand material, and while there may be other books worth reading first, this should definitely be high on the list of books to read. This book describes in detail the urban combat situations faced by the IDF with discussions of civilians on the battlefield, fratricide mitigation, restrictive rules of engagement, terrain analysis, and various discussions of TTPs used by the IDF in urban combat. While none of these subjects are directly addressed, they are all interwoven into the text of the book.

This book is an excellent read for all professional soldiers and military historians.
