Abstract:

"After witnessing a ransacked and desecrated Jerusalem, Simon and his four brothers--soon to be known and revered as the Maccabees--rise to lead an earthshaking rebellion. Their tale has almost no parallel in human history. Theirs was the will, fire, and unbending spirit that inspired the timeless rite of Hanukkah, transforming a society of farmers and scholars into an unconquerable army that would wage the first modern fight for freedom and the first victory for religious freedom."--Page 4 of cover.
