About this title
In the year AD 73, at the close of a long and bloody battle that ended with the Roman conquest of Jerusalem, one thousand Jewish men, women and children stood atop a small mountain located near the Dead Sea in what is now known as Israel. These brave Jews, known as Zealots because of their zeal for God, chose, when all was lost, to take a stand for freedom and to sacrifice their very lives rather than submit to Roman slavery. They were thus seized by a Roman force nearly ten times their number, and the historian Josephus tells us that only two women and five children survived the resultant massacre that is known as Massada. In The Voices Of Massada David Kossoff, through the eyes of the survivors, recreates this unbelievable story, and introduces the guerilla fighters, the collaborators, the Roman generals, and the heroes and heroines who were all a part of the massacre atop Masada. With keen insight Kossoff fully recaptures this moving drama of unfaltering courage in an epic novel that can only be read with great awe and wonder.
