On offer is a super, original World War II manuscript relic of one Jewish Brigade soldier's service in Britain's Royal Navy. Handwritten primarily in Hebrew by Amnon Ish-Shalom H/MX 595216 who lived at Hayeshiva Street in Jerusalem begins Monday September 18th 1944 through to September 1945 to detail his personal and service duties in the small though near full 3½ x 2½ inch book in Hebrew. [Ironically we note his name Ish-Shalom translates to Man-of Peace.] His personal details and his experiences as a Jewish soldier who was recruited from volunteers in the Jewish community in what was then British Mandated Palestine are herein given in this very rare personal account. Historians and researchers will find Amnon's writings filled with technical and personal details; places he served, army units, military courses, meetings, members, and all manner of his experience. The text block is pulling back from the cover but still intact and overall G. BIO NOTES: One online source provides: Amnon Ish-Shalom (b. 1925), who served in the Palmach and the Royal British Navy. [1940s]. Ish-Shalom fought in Gush Etzion with the Jerusalem HISH companies. Ish-Shalom suffered a head injury and was taken as prisoner by the Jordanians upon the Gush Etzion surrender, one day prior to the declaration of the State of Israel. He was discharged from prison on February 22 1949. Later in time Ish-Shalom founded the "Ein Bokek" hotel on the shore of the Dead Sea.
