The Balfour declaration almost coincided with the capture of Jerusalem by British Forces in December 1917. Jeremy Mindell will be giving a talk on the origins of the campaign in the Sinai and Palestine. How they differed from the Western Front, how Allenby came to be in charge of the campaign and the interaction between the Western Front and the successful conclusion of the Palestine campaign.

He will also look at the Jewish contribution to the victories in 1917 and 1918.
