Discover the world of the ancient fortress of Masada in this beautifully illustrated book on the history of early Judean forts. Using specially commissioned artwork to re-create the fortress and modern photography of the site today, this book strips away the myths surrounding this iconic site to explore its founding by King Herod until its eventual seizure by the Romans. This book also covers the other forts that defined the Israeli landscape during three centuries of civil strife and war against the Romans. The author Samuel Rocco, a respected Israeli historian, has spent many years researching these forts and his work provides a fascinating insight into many of the sophisticated designs that were used throughout Judea and even in Jerusalem itself.
