Eliav's memoirs read like a suspense novel from the first page. As Irgun leader in the thirties and LEHI operations chief in the forties, the author constantly risked his life planning and carrying out many of the most daring operations of the Hebrew underground against the British rule and Arab gangs. It was hard to imagine Israel's rebirth as a free nation without the total dedication and self sacrifice of this leading freedom fighter. Illustrated.
