This chapter examines the British Expeditionary Force's (EEF) pursuit of the Turkish forces in Jerusalem. With the EEF's capture of Junction Station, the Turks lost their railway connection to Jerusalem and where forced to either retire into the hills around Jerusalem or retreat northward along the coastal plain toward Jaffa. In his advance on Jerusalem, General Edmund Allenby firmly rejected the notion that he was a modern-day Richard Coeur de Lion. This is because as a commander in chief in the Holy Land, he had a political as well as military role to play.
