This #1 New York Times–bestselling saga traces Israel's earliest days and the people who fought to make it their home
The Exodus was just one ship among many that carried survivors of the Holocaust to Palestine to establish a new nation. But the path that Jewish immigrants took to enter British-controlled Palestine was a difficult one, fraught with danger and political intrigue. The boat was intercepted by British forces and the refugees were placed in concentration camps.

Uris's blockbuster novel traces the lives of the men and women who brave British naval blockades to help Israel come into being, from Ari Ben Canaan, who works tirelessly to smuggle in settlers, to Kitty Fremont, an American nurse drawn into a vast, tragic history. Weaving together fact and fiction, history and dramatic storylines, Exodus stands today as one of the most influential narratives of the founding of the State of Israel.

A #1 New York Times bestseller for nineteen months, Exodus was made into an Academy Award–winning film. It is as essential to understanding the state of Israel today as when it was first published.

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Leon Uris including rare photos from the author's estate.
