The First Tithe takes you where no reader of thrillers, lover of history or analyst of Mideast politics and terrorism has yet gone into the minds of the Zionist revolutionaries, from the secret meetings of the commanders of the Jewish underground planning to expel the British from the Land of Israel in the 1940s, to prison cells where freedom fighters plan to turn their trials into theater and to escape.
The First Tithe is the memoir of one of the leaders of the fiercest Jewish underground army in 2,000 years. It is the story of bank robberies, bombings and the assassination of a British cabinet minister. Israel Eldad reveals the history and revolutionary theories behind the blood and fire that created modern Israel and the national spirit that maintains it. No lover of suspense, friend of Israel or person who seeks to understand the roots of terror can do without The First Tithe.
