This is the yet-to-be Israeli Premier's story of his imprisonment, torture and eventual release. The dustjacket is enclosed in a clear cellophane protective cover. The dj is worn and torn but secure. The board covers have some knocks to the corners, light marks and scuffing. The contents are near immaculate. They are fresh, clean, clear. The pages are tight, confident, youthful and healthy. A good copy with this rare inscription from Begin. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services. Good/Fair. signed.
