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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Good I had to read this book for my grade 11 University English course and it was just a phenomenal book. I really enjoyed reading about the Warsaw Ghetto uprising and could not believe the horrific tragedies that were all throughout the book and especially with the in depth explanations of the dogs that the boys had to kill and the death camps. Anyways I won't give the rest away and I will just say such an amazing book! I was glad that I chose to read this book for my english class!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mila 18 A haunting tale of death and torment as seen through the eyes of people in the Warsaw ghetto. Uris shows the ultimate test of human endurance, as well as the extremities of pain and suffering. These people are a testament to the only Jewish revolt against the Nazis. Their actions changed the world's perception of the war, and are documented here, although in fiction, with astounding accuracy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mila 18 A fantastic account of the Warsaw Jewish ghetto uprising. Although it is historical fiction, Uris creates his story around solid historical facts. Anyone interested in WWII, and particularly this incident, would enjoy this book. Uris shows how different sects of Jews understand and deal with the Holocaust, and the unity achieved as they set aside religious, political and ideological views to stand together.
