SONS AND SOLDIERS The Untold Story of the Jews Who Escaped the Nazis and Returned With the U.S. Army to Fight Hitler

by | Read by Brett Barry

Biography & Memoir • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

This audiobook is an American immigrants' story about how Jewish youth fled from the Nazis to the U.S. and then returned to Europe as soldiers of the U.S. Army. Brett Barry's matter-of-fact narration is perfect for bringing to life the story of the Ritchie Boys, a unit of nearly 2,000 German-born Jews who were trained to interrogate Nazi prisoners of war. Listeners learn about a half-dozen of the Ritchie Boys and their lives before, during, and after WWII. Barry creates riveting, distinctive profiles for the featured soldiers. He also smoothly handles the complicated personal and geographic names in this work. The result is a fascinating look at a little-known segment of military history.
