by Leon Uris
The epic saga of Israel’s earliest days and the people who fought to make it their home
The Exodus was just one ship among many that carried survivors of the Holocaust to Palestine to establish a new nation. But the path that Jewish immigrants took to enter British-controlled Palestine was a difficult one, fraught with danger and political intrigue. The boat was intercepted by British forces and the refugees were placed in concentration camps.
Uris’s blockbuster novel traces the lives of the men and women who brave British naval blockades to help Israel come into being, from Ari Ben Canaan, who works tirelessly to smuggle in settlers, to Kitty Fremont, an American nurse drawn into a vast, tragic history. Weaving together fact and fiction, history and dramatic storylines, Exodus stands today as one of the most influential narratives of the founding of the State of Israel.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Leon Uris including rare photos from the author’s estate.

This has to be one of the most profoundly moving stories I have read in years. Though it was written several years ago, this book has not lost its appeal. The history of the rebirth of the nation of Israel is interwoven into the story in such a way as to make the characters seem authentic. It's a phenomenal story that you will not forget. Leon Uris is a master story teller. I'm starting on another one of his books already.
