Author Info
Leon Uris
Uris was educated in Baltimore and Philadelphia, then enlisted in the Marines in 1942, when he was 18. He served until 1946, and married a fellow marine, Sgt. Betty Beck (whom he later divorced, after three children). Uris began to write after the war, producing his first novel, BATTLE CRY, in 1953, which established him as a successful popular writer. He also wrote a number of screenplays, including the 1955 script for BATTLE CRY and such classics as GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K. CORRAL. In 1958, his novel EXODUS, a monumental work about the emergence of Israel, was published to tremendous acclaim, and also made into a successful movie. (Most of Uris's novels, in fact, have been filmed.) He has written frequently about Zionism and other Jewish themes, but he has also written sagas of the Irish and their troubles, including a photographic essay, IRELAND: A TERRIBLE BEAUTY, with his third wife, a photographer.
From the Publisher
First Line They call me Mac.
Editors Note They came from America's cities and farms and reservations -- boys who became men under the withering fire of a bold and terrible enemy. In Pacific killing zones called Tarawa and Guadalcanal, they stared into the savage face of war and did not flinch. In their country's most desperate hour -- in the blood, anguish, and terror of combat -- they would grow to be comrades, soldiers, heroes, Marines.This is their story.
Editors Note 2 Battle Cry is the riveting Marine epic by the bestselling author of such classics as Trinity and Exodus. Originally published in 1953, Leon Uris's Battle Cry is the raw and exciting story of men at war from a legendary American author. This is the story of enlisted men – Marines – at the beginning of World War II. They are a rough–and–ready tangle of guys from America's cities and farms and reservations. Led by a tough veteran sergeant, these soldiers band together to emerge as part of one of the most elite fighting forces in the world. With staggering realism and detail, we follow them into intense battles – Guadalcanal and Tarawa – and through exceptional moments of camaraderie and bravery. Battle Cry does not extol the glories of war, but proves itself to be one of the greatest war stories of all time.
