By the beginning of October 1939, when cosmopolitan Warsaw fell to German occupation, a young Zionist leader, Issac Zuckerman, had already been mobilizing the youngsters in the youth group that he led. Isaac's Army tells how the Jewish Resistance Force held out until the war's end and compellingly recreates a desperate time in Polish history, marked by the perseverance and heroism of those who battled to drive the Nazis from their city.

Review:

'Valuable text ... well-told ... as moving and powerful as any novel' Kirkus starred review.

'A taut and worthy retelling ... will be controversial' Publishers Weekly.

'Transcends horror [and] finds real inspiration in the bravery of those who fought back' Alan Furst.

'Exceptionally harrowing ... written in a visceral, novelistic style Brzezinski's book is clearly the product of massive research ... it deserves praise as a fitting testament to human resilience' Sunday Business Post.

Book Description Head of Zeus, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. 1930s Warsaw was a thoroughly cosmopolitan, even swinging city. Larger than Chicago, it was host to a rich Jewish cultural life. It seemed inconceivable that all this was about to be swept away, but then came the dark events of September 1939. As the Nazi invasion of Poland began, a ragtag army calling itself the Jewish Resistance Force fell into shape around the handsome, quick-witted Isaac Zuckerman. Impossibly daring, the JRF held out until the end of the war, by which time fewer than 100 of its members survived. ISAAC'S ARMY is the thrilling tale of the fortunes of the JRF's main participants, told in vivid prose that brilliantly creates an atmosphere febrile with danger, heroism and ingenuity - like Babel's Odessa Tales crossed with the Great Escape. In amongst the tragedy, ISAAC'S ARMY manages to be touching, entertaining, and even very funny, and ultimately a celebration of the resilience of the human spirit.
