• Description : Joining the ranks of Unbroken, Band of Brothers, and Boys in the Boat, the little-known saga of young German Jews, dubbed The Ritchie Boys, who fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s, came of age in America, and returned to Europe at enormous personal risk as members of the U.S. Army to play a key role in the Allied victory. In 1942, the U.S. Army unleashed one of its greatest secret weapons in the battle to defeat Adolf Hitler: training nearly 2,000 German-born Jews in special interrogation techniques and making use of their mastery of the German language, history, and customs. Known as the Ritchie Boys, they were sent in small, elite teams to join every major combat unit in Europe, where they interrogated German POWs and gathered crucial intelligence that saved American lives and helped win the war. Though they knew what the Nazis would do to them if they were captured, the Ritchie Boys eagerly joined the fight to defeat Hitler. As they did, many of them did not know the fates of their own families left behind in occupied Europe. Taking part in every major campaign in Europe, they collected key tactical intelligence on enemy strength, troop and armored movements, and defensive positions. A postwar Army report found that more than sixty percent of the credible intelligence gathered in Europe came from the Ritchie Boys. Bruce Henderson draws on personal interviews with many surviving veterans and extensive archival research to bring this never-before-told chapter of the Second World War to light. Sons and Soldiers traces their stories from childhood and their escapes from Nazi Germany, through their feats and sacrifices during the war, to their desperate attempts to find their missing loved ones in war-torn Europe. Sons and Soldiers is an epic story of heroism, courage, and patriotism that will not soon be forgotten. [...] by Publisher : 'William Morrow Paperbacks'

• Description : A daughter’s account of her father’s escape from the Nazis—and his journey back to Europe with the US Army to bring them to justice. The scion of a Jewish merchant family, Walter Wolff fled Germany for Brussels, Belgium, when the Nazis came to power. But his new home was no refuge. On the eve of the German invasion of the Low Countries in May 1940, the Wolffs were forced to make a second escape. The ensuing sixteen-month odyssey took them through occupied France—where they were compelled to keep their identity secret—and onto the notorious freighter SS Navemar, where they were among the last Jewish refugees admitted to the United States before the attack on Pearl Harbor. But within two years, Walter was back in Europe—first in Italy, and then in Germany and Austria—taking the fight to the Nazis as a soldier in the US Army. Trained for the Intelligence Corps, he interrogated POWs for potential prosecution as war criminals at Nuremberg. In his off hours, he returned to the properties confiscated from his extended family to throw out the occupiers and reclaim rightful ownership. In this rousing tale of heroism and sacrifice, Walter Wolff’s daughter tells the story of the proud Jewish boy who successfully escaped persecution and returned to prosecute his oppressors. Reconstructed from family lore and her father’s own cache of more than seven hundred wartime letters and two hundred photographs, which he revealed to her shortly before he died, Someday You Will Understand shines a light on the exploits of an ordinary man who fought back and won against the greatest tyranny the world has ever seen.

• Description : *A NATIONAL BESTSELLER!* The New York Post calls The Last Fighter Pilot a "must-read" book. From April to August of 1945, Captain Jerry Yellin and a small group of fellow fighter pilots flew dangerous bombing and strafe missions out of Iwo Jima over Japan. Even days after America dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima on August 6 and Nagasaki on August 9, the pilots continued to fly. Though Japan had suffered unimaginable devastation, the emperor still refused to surrender. Bestselling author Don Brown (Treason) sits down with Yelllin, now ninety-three years old, to tell the incredible true story of the final combat mission of World War II. Nine days after Hiroshima, on the morning of August 14th, Yellin and his wingman 1st Lieutenant Phillip Schlamberg took off from Iwo Jima to bomb Tokyo. By the time Yellin returned to Iwo Jima, the war was officially over—but his young friend Schlamberg would never get to hear the news. The Last Fighter Pilot is a harrowing first-person account of war from one of America's last living World War II veterans. [...] by Publisher : 'Simon and Schuster'

• Description : A #1 Wall Street Journal e-book bestseller! "THE SECRET RESCUE combines all of the elements that draw us to WWII stories: the daring of The Guns of Navarone, the suspense of The Great Escape, and the bravery reminiscent of Ill Met by Moonlight. It's the inclusion of so many women, though, that makes this story unique.'' -- Daily Beast This mesmerizing account of the courage and bravery of ordinary women and men reveals for the first time an astonishing true story of heroic struggle and endurance. When twenty-six Army Air Force flight nurses and medics boarded a military transport plane in November 1943 on a mission to evacuate wounded and sick troops, they didn't anticipate a crash landing in Nazi territory. Emerging from their battered aircraft, the Americans found themselves in Albania, a country rife with chaos and danger. With hunger and sickness as their constant companions, they hid at night with courageous villagers who shared what little food they had, risking death at Nazi hands by doing so. For months, they prayed desperately to be rescued while doing everything they could to survive. [...] by Publisher : 'Little, Brown'
