Description -

Mitla Pass (1988) is a novel written by the American novelist Leon Uris.


Gideon Zadok is an American author who is to follow an airborne team to secure the Mitla Pass during the Suez Crisis and thereby becomes involved in the Mitla incident when colonel Zechariah (whose real world counterpart is Ariel Sharon) decides to capture it despite other orders. During the course of these events, readers are taken back to previous events from Zadok's marriage, some of his deeds in the US Marine Corps, and also his parents' life and history, which goes from the shtetls of Russia, through their early years in Palestine, and on to Baltimore and the First World War.
