Stranger than Fiction
s/t: A Short History of the Jews from Earliest Times to the Present Day with Fifty Animated Maps by the Author Giving a Pictorial History of Centuries of Wandering
Browne writes in the prologue that while this story may have been told, yet it cries out to be told still again. From beginning to end it pleads to be retold, and not as a list of names and dates, but as a wild adventure, as a romance. For the whole history of the Jewish people is a romance; the strangest, the most colorful in the saga of all humankind.
