Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It is the final weeks of World War II. His Majesty's Jewish Brigade, the only all-Jewish fighting unit in the war, goes into combat against the Nazis. In one glorious battle they push the Nazis back and emerge victorious only to be pulled from the front days later. This is when the Brigade's real struggle beings. Amidst the chaos of post-war Europe, and under the noses of the occupying Allied armies, the young men of the Brigade mastermind one clandestine operation after another, forming secret vengeance squads to assassinate Nazi officers in hiding, and engineering the rescue and transportation of Holocaust survivors to Palestine. Told from the point of view of three principal characters— Israel Carmi, Johanan Peltz, and Arie Pinchuk— The Brigade, while certain to make headlines and provoke debate about the moral elements of justice, is at its core a personal drama of three remarkable men who set out to fight a war and in the process help create a nation.

Synopsis:

In the final weeks of World War II, his Majesty's Jewish Brigade--the only such unit in the war--went into combat against the mighty Wehrmacht. "The Brigade" is a personal drama of three remarkable men who set out to fight a war, and in the process, help create a nation. photo insert.

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.
