New York Times Bestseller: A “sprawling, action-packed novel” of Israel by the author of The Hope (Philadelphia Inquirer).
This follow-up to The Hope plunges immediately into the violence and upheaval of the Six-Day War of 1967—and continues the stories of its multiple characters and of Israel’s dramatic struggle for survival across the years. The Glory takes readers through the terrors of the Yom Kippur War, the famous Entebbe rescue, and the airstrikes on Saddam Hussein’s nuclear reactor—ending with the final hope for peace.
Illuminating the inner lives of real Israeli leaders—including David Ben-Gurion, Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, and Ariel Sharon—the Pulitzer Prize-winning “master of the historical novel” (Los Angeles Times) tells the story of Israel’s struggle to exist with a compelling sense of both the broad significance of this time in history, and its personal impact on those who lived through it.
