Capt Basil Henry Liddell Hart and Maarachot

Administrative / Biographical history

In Sept 1939, the Haganah, the clandestine Jewish military force in Palestine, began to publish its Hebrew military journal, Maarachot. With Israeli independence in 1948 the journal eventually became a recognised and authoritative vehicle for the transmission of military theory. In its first issue, Capt Basil Henry Liddell Hart wrote an article entitled, 'Rapid Training of Recruits', thus marking the start of an intellectual relationship that lasted until Liddell Hart's death in 1970.
