As the end of the war in Europe draws near, the Zionist leadership focuses on bringing Holocaust survivors to Palestine.
The British, continuing with their anti-Zionist policies even after the war, devote massive resources to stop it.
In all, 39 ships of the Royal Navy operate against the refugee boats between 1945 and 1948, a task force larger than the Mediterranean fleet when World War II began.
Britain will suffer world condemnation for its actions.
