About This Item

New York: Harper Collins, (2001). First Edition. First printing. Octavo Cloth-backed boards (hardcover); dustjacket; x,326pp, illus. Fine copy in crisp, unworn dustwrapper. Account of members of the Jewish Brigade Group in the British Army during WW2, and their subsequent careers as Nazi hunters and members of the Haganah Underground. A new-appearing, apparently unread copy.

Synopsis

November 1944. The British government finally agrees to send a brigade of 5,000 Jewish volunteers from Palestine to Europe to fight the German army. But when the war ends and the soldiers witness firsthand the horrors their people have suffered in the concentration camps, the men launch a brutal and calculating campaign of vengeance, forming secret squads to identify, locate, and kill Nazi officers in hiding. Their own ferocity threatens to overwhelm them until a fortuitous encounter with an orphaned girl sets the men on a course of action — rescuing Jewish war orphans and transporting them to Palestine — that will not only change their lives but also help create a nation and forever alter the course of world history.
