The Revolt

The Story of the Irgun


Menachem Begin was run out of Poland by the Nazis, imprisoned by the Soviets, hunted by the British and nearly murdered by the Jews. To have survived would have been impressive enough. To have flourished- Begin led the first Jewish nationalist revolution in nearly 2,000 years and signed the first peace treaty in Israeli history- ranks as something of a miracle” -Sidney Zion, 1983

Menachem Begin  was a participant in the major events in modern Jewish history:  the evolution of Zionism, resistance to the Nazi genocide,  Soviet conquest of Eastern Europe, struggle  against British rule in Palestine, founding of the state of Israel and the peace treaty with Egypt, which won him a Nobel Prize. 

Begin was a controversial figure, commander of the Irgun, an underground Army which fought against the British Mandatory regime in Palestine. He was lionized by some, demonized by others, but his love of the Jewish people and his heroism in the service of their national  homeland were never questioned.

The Revolt is Begin’s account of the Irgun’s campaign against the British Mandatory Regime and its role in  in the 1948 War of Independence. Told without partisan shading and buttressed by official documents and correspondence it offers a truthful historical record of that momentous period

“I read The Revolt by Menachem Begin and was encouraged by the fact that the Israeli leader had led a guerrilla force in a country with neither mountains nor forests, a situation similar to our own.”
–Nelson Mandela
