A presentation copy, inscribed on the title page 'To Mr. T. Evans this book is dedicated with my best wishes M. Begin Jerusalem Nov. 1977'. Describing Begin's time as a prisoner in the Soviet gulag labour camps, his account of his standing up to his interrogators was questioned by some, but its accuracy was confirmed when his NKVD file was declassified.

Dust jacket just nicked and creased on the top cover.
