    Adding a short description (one line) and genre would be useful for potential readers :)

    I would recommend this book to all to get a perspective of the events leading to the creation of Israel and how Arab landlords and religious leaders created the Palestinian problem.

    Most of his books turned out to be movies. Now reading "GUNS OF NAVARONE". I know there's a movie on that too. :)

    How about Robert Ludlum?

    Not a successor, but C.S. Forester wrote some great books, like the "Hornblower" series.

    I know this is a book thread, but I must add, there is a movie called Guns of Navarone and another one called Force 10 from Navarone.
