ABSTRACT
The article presents an exploration into the actions of the British military in suppressing Arab revolts in Palestine during the region's occupation in the later 1930s. Contextual information is given regarding the extent of British political and social engagement with the region during the Mandate tenure. Statistics and conflicting accounts are offered citing the levels of violence and death-tolls which resulted from clashes between British and Arab forces, noting several which suggest brutal actions by the British military. Questions are raised evaluating the extent of British military abuse in the period.
