The Hope plunges the reader into the battles, disasters, and victories of a nation struggling for its birth and then its survival. Here are four unforgettable men: Zev Barak, the cultured soldier; Benny Luria, ace fighter pilot with religious stirrings; Sam asternak, the sardonic, slightly sinister Mossad man; and the antic warrior called Quixote. And here are three equally remarkable women: Yael, the ambitious blond powerhouse; Shayna, the dark pious beauty; and Emily, an American CIA man's fascinating daughter caught in a forbidden love affair.
Ranging from the Sinai to Jerusalem to the White House, from 1948 to 1967, The Hope has the authenticity and authority of Wouk's finest fiction-and strikes a resounding chord of hope for all humanity.
The first book of fact and fiction on the birth of Israel through the Six Day War. A great read for anyone who is interested in the birth of this perservering nation. Order the second book, The Glory, and have the set, bringing you into the 70's and the Camp David Accords, and Israel's raid on the nuclear power plant in Iran.
A novel of historical fiction on the saga of Israel (from 1948 to 1967). The book focuses on four Israeli officers and their women they love.
this book should be required reading for any one remotely interested in the nation of Israel. The book has everything one could possibly want in a book of fiction that closely follows real events.
This is a great read! Wouk can write like a GREAT story teller!
