The Ritchie Boys Vs. The Nazis

As tensions rose in the 1930s, some Jews left Germany, only to return to Europe a few years later as American soldiers. Bruce Henderson joins us to tell the story of these fighters – known as The Ritchie Boys – who acquired intelligence crucial to defeating the Nazis. His new book is called “Sons and Soldiers: The Untold Story of the Jews Who Escaped the Nazis and Returned with the U.S. Army to Fight Hitler” (William Morrow).
