Exodus '47: Inside Out
by Sean Cole (Inside Out, 2004)
This is the story of "Big Bill" Millman, Frank Levine, and Nat Nadler. Before there was an Israel, these three men and nearly 40 others climbed aboard a rusted American ferryboat and set out from Philadelphia to transport thousands of Jewish holocaust survivors past the British blockade of Palestine. Other ships had tried it. But their ship, which would come to be known as the Exodus 1947, was the one that helped shape the political landscape of the Middle East for the foreseeable future.
