The Battle of Tel Hai

The Battle of Tel Hai (1920) is one of the best-known legends of Jewish settlement in Israel. Issa, who took part in the battle, knew the legendary hero Joseph Trumpeldor, but does not know whether he actually said the famous saying “it is good to die for one’s country”, a sentiment that has since been ingrained in generations of students and soldiers.Issa did not hear Trumpeldor, and was not interested.  What interested him more was Dvora Drechsler.  Her story may not be as famous as Trumpledor’s, but without her, history might have turned out very differently.
