All Against All: The Long Winter of 1933 and the Origins of the Second World War, Paul Jankowski Profile £20
I don’t want to give this work a bad review, because I suspect it just isn’t written for me. But All Against All is an unrelenting tsunami of facts which totally overwhelmed me. At no point could I pick out an underlying narrative or ideological point.

For a century, Palestine has suffered through colonial rule, territorial conquest, occupation after occupation and an apartheid regime oppressing Palestinians in their land. The 100 Years’ War on Palestine explores this complex history, with Rashid Khalidi delving deep into the painful and heart-rendering timeline of how Palestine came to be the occupied land it is today. With sharp detail surrounding the many declarations of war and mandates set out to conquer and control Palestinians, he reveals the beauty of their continual resistance.
