'The last great, untold story of WWII... highly compelling' Daily
Mail Fleeing Nazi persecution for America in the 1930s, the young
German-born Jews who would come to be known as The Ritchie Boys
were labelled 'enemy aliens' when war broke out. Although of the
age to be inducted into the U.S. military, their German accents
made them distrusted. Until one day in 1942, when the Pentagon woke
up to the incredible asset they had in their ranks, and sent these
young recruits to a secret military intelligence training centre at
Camp Ritchie, Maryland. These men knew the language, culture and
psychology of the enemy better than anyone, and had the greatest
motivation to fight Hitler's anti-Semitic regime. And so they were
trained and sent back into the belly of the beast, Jews returning
to the frontlines of battlefields across Nazi-occupied Europe to
defeat the enemy that persecuted them and their families. In an
epic story of heroism, courage, and patriotism, bestselling author
Bruce Henderson draws on personal interviews with many surviving
veterans and extensive archival research to finally bring this
never-before-told chapter of the Second World War to light.

Interesting but dry

An interesting story but the author's style is dry and this reduces the emotional impact on the reader.
