Book Ad of the Week: THE SUMMER THAT BLED (1973)


May 21, 1973

The Summer That Bled
by Anthony Masters
St. Martin's Press, 1972

This non-fiction account of the life and death of Hannah Senesh was never adapted into a major motion picture. However, Yoel Palgi's books The Diaries Of Hanna Senesh and A Great Wind Cometh were the basis for the 1988 film HANNA'S WAR, directed by Menahem Golan and starring Maruschka Detmers, Ellen Burstyn and Donald Pleasence.
