The epic saga of Israel & rsquo;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 & rsquo;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 & rsquo;s estate.

"Exodus" is a timeless classic. I read this book again because of what is currently going on Poland. Poland is claiming they were innocents in the holocaust. That is very much not true. Leon Uris takes some liberties with his story, but the facts he uses as background are historical facts. Jewish people were treated horribly for centuries. The holocaust was the epitome, but it was not the end. What Jewish people did to create Israel was truly amazing, and they did despite very strong resistance from their British overseers. The Brits felt that continued access to Arab oil was more important than humanity. I'm of Polish and Irish descent, and I believe everyone should read this book.
