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.
