Jerusalem Divided: The Armistice Regime, 1947-1967
Jerusalem was one of the most complicated, value- and emotion-laden, fronts during the 1948-49 Israeli War of Independence. The Jewish population in West Jerusalem was caught up in a bitter siege, as the Arabs from the eastern section fought for control of the entire city, to satisfy King Abdallah's desire to rule Jerusalem and other parts of Western Palestine. Static trench warfare, waged street by street, finally ground to a halt, and the city was divided along lines set down by the armistice agreements signed by Israel and Jordan in 1949.
