Description
In 1944, having barely escaped Nazi Germany, a band of Jewish refugees volunteered to strike back at the Third Reich. After months of training with the U.S. Army, a company of spies was formed under Sergeant Frederick Mayer, a German Jew serving as a Ranger for America, and sent on a covert operation deep in Austria's Alpine Redoubt, where Hitler planned to hide out in a fortified bunker. The author of We Were One and Beyond Valor, Patrick O'Donnell's cinematic World War II drama is filled with unforgettable personalities and packed with action and intrigue.

"A gripping page-turner that has the reader racing from chapter to chapter to see what happens next, and to learn whether the person written about will be discovered and captured or killed. [Patrick] O'Donnell, a military historian, writes fact as if he were writing suspense fiction."Jerusalem Post

"Revisiting one of the most dangerous WWII missions ever, O'Donnell examines the planning and execution of a 1944 strike by Jewish soldiers against a top-secret target in Austria that, it was believed, could shorten the conflict.... Operation Greenup was a brazen military exercise behind enemy lines, using a core of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany and locals to gather intelligence and reduce the resistance from SS soldiers. Armed with research in the National Archives, confidential documents and personal interviews, O'Donnell tells a heart-stopping tale of sabotage by men and women who placed everything on the line against a seemingly unstoppable tyranny."Publishers Weekly
