The Palmach was formed in 1941 at the height of World War II in the wake of growing fears of an invasion by German forces into Eretz Israel. The purpose of the organization was to prepare the military infrastructure for military resistance to the German army. When World War II ended, the efforts of the Palmach were redirected to the struggle against the British Mandate in Palestine as well as to efforts to save Holocaust survivors and bring them to Eretz Israel.   The crowning achievement of the Palmach’s activities was the fight for Israel’s independence in 1948, playing a central role, and spearheaded the establishment of the Israeli Defense Forces. The Palmach was not merely a military organization. It was also a social-ideological organization, founded on the values of pioneering settlement. The story of the Palmach, a self-sufficient army, is the story of its members during the period when volunteer pioneering activities were the social ideal and way of life for many.
