In this spellbinding book, Lou Ureneck recreates one of the most important humanitarian rescue missions of the twentieth-century.  GREAT FIRE is an exceptional account – dramatic, poignant, and masterfully written – of an unforgettable moment in the history of human tragedy and heroism.

 Caroline Elkins

Professor of History at Harvard University and Pulitzer Prize winning author of Imperial Reckoning: An Untold Story of Britain’s Gulag in Kenya

GREAT FIRE is an epic of humankind at its best and worst — an epic that is all the more spellbinding because it is meticulously factual.
David Laskin
author of The Family: A Journey into the Heart of the 20th Century

 

“Ureneck’s account is magisterial in its portrait of the personalities involved, and it charts equally well the densely intertwined currents of history as his narrative gathers speed…a tragic but very moving story.”

– Robert Shenk,
author of America’s Black Sea Fleet and professor at University of New Orleans.
