 About the Book 

In the year AD 70, 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 besieged 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 tragedy that is known as Masada.
