Summary (From the publisher):

It was a time of crisis, a time of tragedy—and a time of transcendent courage and determination. Leon Uris's 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 story of one of the most heroic struggles of modern times.

Blurbs:
  • "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!" New York Times
  • "Uris has created a singularly moving account - a powerful story of people whose personal tragedies make clearer the enormity of Nazi crimes. For all its apsorption with the almost unbelievable atrocities which the Nazis inflicted on the Jews jammed behind 'the wall' in Warsaw, Mila 18 becomes a stirring story of valor, of human dignity, and of love which is able to trhascend the bestialities of man..."
