In the fall of 1945, when the Second World war was over, the hopes for change in 'The White Paper' policy of the British Government were not fulfilled. These policies placed harsh sanctions on the immigration of Jews into the country and purchasing lands for Jewish settlement, while the holocaust surviving European Jewry, held in transit camps expected those rights. The leadership decided to change its relationship with the British Mandate rule: No more collaboration, not just diplomatic pressure – but a struggle that would force the British Government to change its policy and allow free immigration and maximum development for the 'Jewish National Home.'
The struggle was conducted on four levels: Increasing the number of immigration ships aiming to enter the country's shores; reinforcing the purchase of lands and the establishment of new settlements; violent operations – with arms – against military targets and facilities, along with an increased political effort.
During the struggle period, the Palmach gained combat experience, a legacy of struggle and public prestige, which contributed to its strength and function during the War of Independence.
