Insightful, stirring, and controversial, The Enemy Within is a series of essays describing the author's first-hand experiences as a founding member of the Israeli IRGUN, the underground freedom fighters group founded by Ze'ev Jabotinsky.

Jacob Gurewich's parents emigrated from Riga, Lativa, to Israel in the 1930s. Growing up in the Holy Land, Jacob soon joined the pioneering Irgun group. It was a fateful decision. Throughout his career in the Israeli Defense Force, Jacob locked horns with leaders such as Menachem Begin; learned the truth about covert activities involving international leaders; and was nearly executed for his beliefs. His collection of never-before-told essays will captivate history buffs, Middle East aficionados, and fans of the historical narrative. The Enemy Within is chock full of eyewitness accounts of the covert activities conducted by the British since World War I - and up to the day of liberation.

The Enemy Within is far more than a military recollection - it quenches the reader's thirst for intrigue. Gurewich delivers the truth behind the Sezon Period, the hanging of the 12 freedom fighters by the British. He was tortured, exiled to East Africa, and almost executed for his beliefs.

In light of today's chaotic "Roadmap to Peace" in the Middle East, The Enemy Within is timely and will strike a deep chord with readers. Using countless examples of tyrannical acts of anti-Semitism throughout the ages, readers will be challenged to examine and weigh their attitudes toward the Arab situation, especially with World War II still looming in the background.
