Mila 18

Mila 18 is a stirring novel about the strength of the human spirit. The setting is in German occupied Warsaw during World War II. Leon Uris's work is about the Nazi atrocities of systematically dehumanizing and eliminating the Jewish People from the face of the earth. The term "ghetto" takes on a clearer meaning as the courageous Jewish leaders fight a losing battle against the Nazis and their henchmen. The "ultimate" solution was to ship all Jews in cattle cars for ultimate extermination at Death Camps, but a few courageous individuals formed an army and made a stand, and what a stand it was.
