Description
Were these the original inglorious bastards? A British Army brigade was formed in 1944 and fought with distinction in Italy—the first all-Jewish "army," fighting the Nazis under the flag of the Star of David. Ferocious avengers in battle, the Jewish brigade chose a new direction after the war. Without official sanction, they formed revenge squads and hunted down as many as 1500 high-ranking Nazi officials, while also helping Holocaust survivors to find passage to Palestine. Morris Beckman, a veteran of the invasions of Sicily and Italy in World War II and a founding member of the "43 Group" of Jewish ex-servicemen, chronicles the brigade and describes how it became the backbone of the Israeli Defense Force.
