I, too, had no idea this list existed and would like to added. In interviews, book signings, and other events, I have often been asked if I based my writing on anyone and my answer for a long time was no - it is what it is. But then, when Leon Uris died, I had almost a flashback to reading Exodus in my youth and realized emotionally how tied my views were to that experience. To the extent that I 'berated' Daniel Pipes in one of our dialogues for praising 'religious zionists' and failing to acknowledge 'secular zionists'.

Exodus started my interest in Jewish history.
That and Mila 18.
I bought anything Uris including his last book which broke my heart. How could the man who wrote so eloquently of the sorrow of a disarmed and persecuted people write such a gun-grabbing load of BS?
