This is an exciting story built upon the ancient records left to us by Josephus!
The troubles in the district of Tiberias; the march of the legions; the sieges of Jotapata, Gamala, and Jerusalem all come to life. In this impressive and carefully-studied historic setting, you will follow a lad – John of Gamala – who passes from working in the vineyards to the service of Josephus himself! He becomes the leader of a guerrilla band of patriots, and fights bravely for the Temple in Jerusalem; and after a brief term of slavery at Alexandria, he returns to his Galilean home with the favor and approval of Titus. The fall of Jerusalem is brought to life in this classic work by G. A. Henty!
