In the first book ever devoted to the First Jewish Revolt, award-winning author and historian Stephen Dando-Collins provides unparalleled insight into the fight for Jerusalem.
Known as the Great Revolt by Jewish communities and as the Judean War by the Romans, Dando-Collins details the conflict from both sides of the 4-year campaign. His examination of the revolt draws upon numerous archeological and forensic discoveries made since 2002 to illuminate the people and events as never before.
Neither side emerges from the conflict unscathed. Both were at times equally heroic and barbaric. In the end, the Jewish freedom fighters lost the war and their holy city—the focus of the revolt that the Roman military fought to end. Yet today, Jerusalem is once more the heart of the Jewish faith, while, thanks to Christianity—an offshoot of Judaism—the Roman Empire and its gods have long gone. Conquering Jerusalem illustrates that faith can have its rewards...and the tables can be turned if you wait long enough.
