The Revolt is the story of the militant Zionist organization Irgun Zvai Leumi, by one of its principal leaders, Menachem Begin (later Prime Minister of Israel). In Israel, the organization is commonly called Etzel, based on its Hebrew acronym. It traces the development of the Irgun from its early days in the 1930s, through its years of violent struggle in the Palestine Mandate against both British rule (the "revolt" of the title) and Arab opposition, to the outbreak of the Israeli War of Independence in 1948. The book is also part autobiographical, tracing Begin's own political development.
The book is in fair to good condition, there is a slight lean to the spine and the boards are a little rubbed to the corners and spine ends. The contents are in good condition. The dustwrapper is in poor condition, with grubby marks to the edges and significant loss all over.
