Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. General Sir Evelyn Hugh Barker KCB KBE DSO MC (1894-1983) was a British Army general in World War II, and commander of British forces in the Mandate Palestine from 1946 to 1947. Barker is remembered for his order, following the King David Hotel bombing, that (We) will be punishing the Jews in a way the race dislikes as much as any, by striking at their pockets and showing our contempt of them. He was the son of a high-ranking officer, Major-General Sir George Barker. In 1913, Evelyn Barker was commissioned with King's Royal Rifle Corps, and the next year sent to the French theatre of World War I. He fought in France, took part in the Thessaloniki operation, was wounded and decorated.show more
