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.
Regrettably, the print/font size was small and the spacing of the lines were too close together to make for an enjoyable read. I tired after reading the first page.
I donated the book to my local library and will endeavour to purchase Mila 18 in a more enjoyable readable format.
