“Not only authentic as history…it is convincing as fiction…The story of a sacrifice that had real meaning and will forever be remembered…A fine and important novel!” —New York Times
A magnificent historical tribute to the city of Jerusalem that encompasses the five turbulent millennia of its history, this book illuminates every facet of the amazing metropolis as documented by Jill and Leon Uris.
Jerusalem has variously been described as the center of the world, the eye of the world, and the navel of the world. Regarded as the halfway house between heaven and earth, this likening of Jerusalem to paradise has been echoed by mankind for over three thousand years. In this unprecedented historical tour of a one-of-a-kind place, Jill and Leon Uris pay homage to its epic history and the millions of people who have found sanctuary there.
Jill and Leon sing the city’s praises and remind us that “It is said the world has ten measures of beauty and nine of those belong to Jerusalem.”

Release Date: 3/28/23
Formats: Trade Paperback, Large Print Hardcover
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.
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.
Jill and Leon Uris came to Ireland looking for answers. Why was Ireland bled by one internal war after another? How can one country contain such greatness and grief? What they discovered was more than the Ireland of peat fires and pubs, of fabled Irish wit and the haunts of the banshees. What they found was a people—trapped in mutual mistrust, but with a courage and kindness that brought them through centuries of bitter occupation and civil dissension, in a land as complexly beautiful as the people themselves. This then is the Urises’ “love song” to the Irish and to Ireland.
From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Exodus, Mila 18 is the epic novel of Jewish resistance in the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II.
It was a time of crisis, a time of tragedy—and a time of transcendent courage and determination.
Leon Uris’s blazing novel is set in the midst of the ghetto uprising that defied Nazi tyranny, as the Jews of Warsaw boldly met Wehrmacht tanks with homemade weapons and bare fists. Here, painted on a canvas as broad as its subject matter, is the compelling story of one of the most heroic struggles of modern times.
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.
A sweeping novel of love, passion, and freedom, Mitla Pass stands as an epic look at modern Middle Eastern history and is quite possibly Uris’s most autobiographical work.
Gideon Zadok arrives in Israel with every intention to research a new book, mend a broken marriage, and improve his dysfunctional family. But as political tensions escalate and his family is evacuated, Zadok asks to follow Israeli paratroopers to secure Mitla Pass and finds himself in the midst of one of the largest global crises of the twentieth century.
