The Burma Road revisited

The rapid creation of the Burma Road to enable Jerusalem to be supplied during the 1948 war of independence is one of the miraculous stories of the 1948 War of Independence.  The events are described here.

Benny Morris’s recent book entitled “1948”  provides a worthwhile summary of the events, but but not as dramatically as does To Cast a Giant Shadow, the 1966 film which stars Kirk Douglas as Col. Mickey Marcus.

The former Burma Road can can now be walked as described here.
