A riveting work of historical fiction, Mila 18 recounts the Jewish persecution and resistance in Warsaw, Poland, during WWII.

The author, Leon Uris, was an experienced American marine during the time, who was deeply moved by the plight of Jews, gypsies, blacks, poles, the physically challenged, and others who were persecuted and systematically exterminated by the Nazis. His novel is informative and entertaining, and was enjoyed by even the biggest book haters at FMA.

Mainly set in the ghetto of Warsaw on Mila Street, the book tells the story of a group of Jewish resistance fighters who fought back against the Nazi’s attempts to round them up and ship them to concentration camps. The will to survive of these rebels is incredible, and Mila 18 is an inspiring tale that would be enjoyable for most readers.
