New York Times bestseller: Nazis close in on Poland’s Jews in the Warsaw ghettos in this powerful Holocaust novel from the author of Exodus.
 
In Nazi-occupied Warsaw before the outbreak of World War II, American journalist Christopher de Monti is wined and dined by German officers eager for sympathetic coverage. But de Monti’s nose for the real story soon leads him to discover the terrifying conditions of the Warsaw ghettos and the Nazis’ chilling plans for the ghettos’ inhabitants.
 
As he comes to know the Jewish resistance movement and joins their courageous—if doomed—last stand, de Monti is thrust into a forbidden affair, a historic uprising, and a terrifying quest for survival. A novel inspired by real events and based on meticulous research into pre-WWII Warsaw, Mila 18 is “the story of a sacrifice that had real meaning and will forever be remembered. . . . A fine and important novel” (The New York Times).
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Leon Uris including rare photos from the author’s estate.
