Elnakam is the "nom de guerre" given to Ezra Yakhin in the LEHI. He was born in Jaffa in 1928 but his early childhood was spent in Yemin Moshe, Jerusalem, opposite the walls of the Old City, from where he and his family were evacuated during the 1929 Arab riots.
His youth was spent in the busy lanes of the Machane Yehuda Quarter where the seeds of revolution against British rule were nurtured, eventually bringing him into service in the Lehi.
His first assignment in the underground was to distribute and paste up Wall Posters. He participated in reconnaisances, in ambushes and in other actions against the British and Arabs. Elnakam was miraculously saved from prison and death many times, was wounded twice and lost an eye in the attack on the Old City.
This book, Elnakam, originally written in Hebrew, has been reprinted nine times and is widely used in different educational institutions as an aid in study of the history of the War of Independence.
Elnakam is the author of six books about heroes in our times and religious and political subjects.
Today, the author lectures extensively on the history of the Underground Movements and History of Israeli politics.
