Leah Garrett X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos of World War II
Interviewed by Kathryn W. Lerch, historian and educator
You might think this book is a page-turning a novel, but it is thoroughly researched and excellently written history.
June 1942. The shadow of the Third Reich has fallen across the European continent. In desperation, Winston Churchill forms an unusual plan: a new commando unit made up of Jewish refugees who have escaped to Britain.
The resulting volunteers are a motley crew of intellectuals, artists, and athletes, most from Germany and Austria who became elite shock troops, dealing devastating blows against the Nazis. This is their astonishing story.
This is a Jewish Book Council program.
