Jerusalem is the boardgame of the 1948 conflict in which Israel established itself as a nation. The tactical battle has the Jewish forces attempting to keep open or bypass with a new road, the only source of food for the city.
In Jerusalem, the players do not merely move, but conduct an operation. This creates a unique flow of play which gives a true feel for the disjointed and desperate battle of the Jews to keep open the one road to the Holy City. Included are units for all the invading armies, Arab guerrillas, el Katub (the mad bomber), the Palmach, Haganah, Irgun, and Stern Gangs. The Israeli player even has the option of building the now famous road in this amazingly accurate and exciting simulation of the nearly aborted birth of the Israeli nation
