The sequel to THE HOPE, the epic novel of Israel's turbulent coming-of-age.

Committed to fight in the air and on the ground against the monumental resources of the Soviet Union, THE GLORY charts Israel's successes over Egypt and the commando raid on Fatah HZ in Beirut, the first missile-to-sea fight in history, which helped tip the balance in the Yom Kippur War, and the famous counter-terrorism raid on Entebbe.

Shifting between Jerusalem and Washington, Los Angeles and Paris, this is the story of a beleaguered country and the men and women who fought for Israeli Independence and triumphed in the Six-Day War but know their fragile nationhood still hangs by a thread as their own children go into battle.
