Inhalt


"Ritchie Boys"

This is the untold story of a group of young men who feld Nazi Germany and returned to Europe as soldiers in US-uniforms. They knew the psychology and the language of the enemy better than anybody else.

In Camp Ritchie, Maryland, they were trained in intelligence and psychological warfare. Not always courageous, but determined, bright and inventive, they fought their own kind of war. They saved lives. They were victors, not victims.They were young and the world′s most unlikely soldiers - with the greatest motivation to the fight this war: they were Jewish. They called themselves The Ritchie Boys.
