World War II Afternoon

The World War II Book Group will discuss Sons and Soldiers: The Untold Story of the Jews Who Escaped the Nazis and Returned with the U.S. Army to Fight Hitler by Bruce Henderson (Morrow, $16.99). Sons and Soldiers begins during the rise of Hitler's Nazi party, as Jewish families choose to send their sons away to uncertain futures in America. Henderson describes how they were recruited into the U.S. Army and how their mastery of the German language and psychology was used to interrogate German prisoners of war. These young men knew what the Nazis would do to them if they were captured. Yet they leapt at the opportunity to be sent in small, elite teams to join every major combat unit in Europe, where they collected key tactical intelligence on enemy strength, troop and armored movements, and defensive positions that saved American lives and helped win the war.
