Mila 18 is one of the better sagas written by Leon Uris. It tells a complex story with a wide cast of people in Warsaw, including an American journalist, all of whom end up entangled in the Warsaw ghetto. Uris paints a vivid picture of ghetto life and compelling stories of what people do in those circumstances, and more importantly, how they fight back. The characterizations are good, the romantic relationships abound, and if they are a little contrived at times, we can forgive him and just cheer for our protagonists. The novel's flaws don't detract too much from the story.
"A great human experience! How the Warsaw Jews lived & how they died of starvation, execution & mass murder before the revolt broke out, how they differed among themselves, how they loved & hated & how they changed under the fearful pressures of terror & imminent death----all this is MILA 18. Deeply moving, powerful, stirring!"
