Masada shall not fall again! Both a rallying cry for modern-day Israel and an inspiration to the world, the siege of Masada took place in the first century C.E., when a small group of Jewish rebels defended their lives and their freedom against the overwhelming might of Rome. With his meticulously researched, event-filled text and illustrations that capture the great desert fortress then and now. Neil Waldman dramatizes the ancient story behind the ruins of Masada and the contemporary efforts by archaeologists to uncover its secrets.
