Biografia breu
Leon Uris was a best-selling novelist known especially for doing deep research into his topics. He was a high school dropout who enlisted in the U.S. Marines at age 17 during World War II, serving in the South Pacific. His writing career began with short stories, and he published his first novel in 1953. Although not well appreciated by literary critics, his works were popular successes and introduced readers to many important social causes and historical events such as the Warsaw Ghetto uprising.
