Once there, he finds Natasha Solomon, a survivor of the Holocaust, and her disturbed passion for him unleashes his own smouldering desires. Then, on the eve of the '56 Sinai War, he abandons her and joins the Israeli forces and is parachuted to the key junction of Mitla Pass, deep behind enemy lines. Amid the sounds of battle, Gideon wages a war no less violent within himself, as he strives to come to grips with the frightening power of love-hate. Breathtaking in scope and painfully human, "Mitla Pass" is the masterwork of a great novelist.Hide synopsis
