Sons and Soldiers
The Untold Story of the Jews Who Escaped the Nazis and Returned With the U.S. Army to Fight Hitler
“Fans of Unbroken and The Boys in the Boat will be thrilled to know that that there is at least one more thrilling tale of WWII heroism able to leave readers nearly breathless. Sons and Soldiers is the remarkable story of German-born Jews who escaped the country during Hitler's rise to power. After training with the U.S. military, these same men returned to their homeland to fight the Nazis. Their knowledge of German culture, geography, and language made them uniquely skilled at gathering enemy intelligence, but also especially vulnerable should they be captured. Bruce Henderson has written a masterpiece, an inspiring and gripping tale of selfless men who risked everything to defeat unspeakable evil.”Christopher Rose, The Spirit Of '76 Bookstore

This story touches on a range of topics, it is a lament for the mistreatment of the Native Americans, a sinister domestic thriller, a perplexing mystery set in the untamed west, a testament to a dying breed of wily western frontiersmen. You will hurtle through this compelling and insightful work that restores a piece of forgotten history to its rightful place.”Samantha, Rediscovered Books
