History in Five: The War of Independence

From the History in Five YouTube Channel, this educational video (05:11) presents an overview of Israel’s War of Independence, including historical background, a timeline and maps explaining the development and major events of the conflict, and the outcome of the war, including the Palestinian refugee crisis, Jewish refugees from Arab lands and the destabilization’s of Arab governments in the region. Although the video itself is simply a slideshow presentation, this is a useful resource, as the narrator presents and explains the facts in a clear and balanced fashion.
