    This review is dedicated to all the sons and daughters of Israel who have fell in defence of that remarkable land.This wonderful book is essential for any Jew who wants to learn about his or her roots, any Christian who wants to learn about the Judaic roots of his or her faith, and anyone else who wants to learn about the soul of the Jewish people This is the story of the Maccabees 5 glorious brothers who lead the rebellion by the Jewish people of Judea, against the cruel tyranny of that land s Greek and Syrian occupiers.It is particularly relevant today, when the Jewish State is fighting for its life against cruel and ungodly forces that have decided that the Jewish people are no longer entitled to their homeland, and that Israel must disappear We where slave in Egypt and we will never forget that we where slaves in Egypt So it must have been then, in the long ago, when our people, twelve tribes of them, sick with wandering and longing for rest, came out of the desert and saw the wooded hills and fertile valleys of Palestine.Once the Jews have returned from their homeland, this time after two thousand years of persecution, and soon the lion will be awaken in the souls of the Jewish people to protect their land, from those who would kill their children and take it way, as the Maccabees did so with the Greek and Syrian invaders.We read how a p...

    A entertaining if rather brief novel about the revolt of the Maccabees in the second century BCE Told in first person narrative by one of the brothers, Simon, it s pretty much an action novel but there is plenty of views on Judaism ...

    This historical novel has gotten many rave reviews since it was first published in 1948 It covers the Maccabee revolt against Greece in 167 B.C Hanukkah has its roots in the events of this period, and I learned a lot about things I knew almost nothing about Five Maccabean brothers are at the heart of the story, and the author does a good job explor...

    Wonderful historical fiction book about the Maccabean Revolt in 167 BCE Mr Fast is also a wonderful writer, describing Judea in vivid detail Simon is also a very complex and conflicted character I think my favorite part was the part from the point of vie...

    A great piece of historical fiction strongly recommendedWhen I teach world history I always give my students a project in which they are to read a piece of historical fiction and do a bit of research This book is exactly the type of book I recommend for them to read and why I created the project in the first place My Glorious Brothers is well written and re creates a little bit of the historical world for the reader.Set in 2nd Century B.C Israel, this is a story of national liberation and freedom of religious expression Many Pr...

    If you like violent, blood thirsty tales of mass murder, revenge, senseless killing, torture, bodily mutilation, and gloating over the murder of adversaries, then this is the book for you If you want all your characters to be either glorious or innocent good guys, or evil despicable bad guys then so much the better Should, in sooth, verily thou take unto thine heart writings beclothed in cheesy pseudo biblical language, then you will love this If you require that all references to sexual matters should be ambiguous, euphemistic and prudish , whilst nothing is held back in the graphical description of violent acts of physical desecrati...

    Sourcebooks will be reissuing Fast s novel of the Maccabee revolt in Judea in 167 BC this fall I wasn t sure what to expect when I picked this up, curious about the reference to the Jewish celebration of Hanakkah Written in 1948, the same year Israel became an independent state, I got the impression Fast wrote the book as a statement to the world that the Jews fought for this land and won it with blood and tears way back in antiquity and there could be no question of their right ...
