  • Battle Cry is the riveting Marine epic by the bestselling author of such classics as Trinity and Exodus

    Originally published in 1953, Leon Uris’s Battle Cry is the raw and exciting story of men at war from a legendary American author. This is the story of enlisted men—Marines at the beginning of World War II. They are a rough-and-ready tangle of guys from America’s cities and farms and reservations. Led by a tough veteran sergeant, these soldiers band together to emerge as part of one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. With staggering realism and detail we follow them into intense battles—Guadalcanal and Tarawa—and through exceptional moments of camaraderie and bravery, Battle Cry does not extol the glories of war, but proves itself to be one of the greatest war stories of all time.

  • Israel is a land of contrasts—of modern hotels and ancient olive trees; of young girls in slacks and elders with traditional beards. It is a country of harsh desert, lush farmland, sandy beaches, and sun-dappled seas. Israel is the common homeland of the Jew, the Christian, and the Muslim. It is a nation with a living history, a memory of violence and pain, a hope for the future, and a promise in its people.

    In Exodus Revisited, Leon Uris returns to the scene of his famous bestselling novel, Exodus, which has sold over five million copies. With power, compassion, and love, he writes a revealing commentary to accompany the sensitive and haunting photographs of Dimitrios Harissiadis.
