of Revolt: The Irgun
This dramatic video examines the role played by the Irgun in the establishment
of the State of Israel. Fascinating interviews with former Irgun
fighters, British Intelligence officers, historians from Israel and England
and with the late Prime Minister Menachem Begin , are interspersed with
historic archival footage. The bombing of the British headquarters
at the King David Hotel, the breakout from the Acre prison, escapes from
detention camps and the sinking of the Altelena are but a few of the highlights.
More than just a history of the Irgun, this is an in-depth look at the
turbulent years that preceded the birth of the State of Israel.
