Men of Honor: American GIs in the Jewish Holocaust
“A collection of gripping stories of a dark side of World War II that brings to life the horrific events of the Holocaust as seen through the eyes of GI POWs.” —LtGen Martin L. Brandtner, USMC (Ret.)
With an “H” for Hebrew emblazoned on their dog tags, thousands of Jewish soldiers imprisoned in POW camps had to decide whether to hide their faith and risk being shot as spies, or step forward and suffer the consequences. For those who admitted being Jewish, or who were discovered, that meant starvation, humiliation and cruelty on a scale that most other American prisoners never experienced.
Men of Honor is the chilling account of more than two dozen American soldiers, some Jewish, some not, who personally experienced the Holocaust in one terrifying way or another.
“An important contribution to the field of Holocaust writing that is shocking and uplifting at the same time. Donaldson is a careful investigator and an evocative writer.” —Barney Cohen, author of The Proud: Inside the Marine Corps and producer of the CBS telemovie Armed and Innocent.
