From the brilliant storyteller who gave us Exodus, QB VII, The Haj, and Mitla Pass

It was a time of crisis, a time of tragedy--and a time of transcendent courage and determination. Leon Uris's blazing novel is set in the midst of the ghetto uprising that defied Nazi tyranny, as the Jews of Warsaw boldly met Wehrmacht tanks with homemade weapons and bare fists. Here, painted on a canvas as broad as its subject matter, is the compelling of one of the most heroic struggles of modern times.

"Not only authentic as history . . . it is convincing as fiction. . . . The story of a sacrifice that had real meaning and will forever be remembered . . . A fine and important novel "-- The New York Times

This was the first Uris novel that I read, and what a great introduction! A tremendous amount of down-to-earth labor clearly went into its writing. It's a rarity: informative and insightful without becoming drily statistical or preachy. And Uris tells a truly compelling story!
