Unfortunately, substantially one-sided account of events, detailing the Israeli leaders, and various atrocities committed by Arabs, but no mention of Arab leaders nor any mention of atrocities by Jews, nor any mention of numbers of Arabs killed.

Would like to find a more balanced account which includes the viewpoints of Arab leaders.

On youtube, this is the first of ten parts. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u3HoAhitiog

Author Sir Martin Gilbert hosts this account of Israel's first years as an independent nation. On May 14, 1948, one day after Israel declared sovereignty, the nation was invaded by Lebanon, Syria, Transjordan, Egypt and Iraq. Through rare footage, photographs and interviews with those who participated in the War of Independence, this program chronicles the struggles -- and captures the harsh realities -- of a fledgling nation at war.
