Sons and Soldiers

Original Synopsis

"Sons and Soldiers has a total of 448 pages which are papers from writer 'Bruce Henderson'. Joining the ranks of Unbroken, Band of Brothers, and Boys in the Boat, the little-known saga of young German Jews, dubbed The Ritchie Boys, who fled Nazi Germany in the 1930s, came of age in America, and returned to Europe at enormous personal risk as members of the U.S. Army to play a key role in the Allied victory. In 1942, the U.S. Army unleashed one of its greatest secret weapons in the battle to defeat Adolf Hitler: training nearly 2,000 German-born Jews in special interrogation techniques and making use of their mastery of the German language, history, and customs. Known as the Ritchie Boys, they were sent in small, elite teams to join every major combat unit in Europe, where they interrogated German POWs and gathered crucial intelligence that saved American lives and helped win the war. Though they knew what the Nazis would do to them if they were captured, the Ritchie Boys eagerly joined the fight to defeat Hitler. As they did, many of them did not know the fates of their own families left behind in occupied Europe. Taking part in every major campaign in Europe, they collected key tactical intelligence on enemy strength, troop and armored movements, and defensive positions. A postwar Army report found that more than sixty percent of the credible intelligence gathered in Europe came from the Ritchie Boys. Bruce Henderson draws on personal interviews with many surviving veterans and extensive archival research to bring this never-before-told chapter of the Second World War to light. Sons and Soldiers traces their stories from childhood and their escapes from Nazi Germany, through their feats and sacrifices during the war, to their desperate attempts to find their missing loved ones in war-torn Europe. Sons and Soldiers is an epic story of heroism, courage, and patriotism that will not soon be forgotten. 2017-07-25 time of publication of the book, [-HarperCollins-]"

Sons and Soldiers [book Club Kit]

Original Synopsis

"Sons and Soldiers [book Club Kit] has a total of 662 pages which are papers from writer 'Bruce B. Henderson'. As Jewish families were trying desperately to get out of Europe during the menacing rise of Hitler's Nazi party, some chose to send their young sons away to uncertain futures in America, perhaps never to see them again. As these boys became young men, they were determined to join the fight in Europe. Known as the Ritchie Boys, after the Maryland camp where they were trained, these army recruits knew what would happen to them if they were captured. Yet they leapt at the opportunity to be sent in small, elite teams to join every major combat unit in Europe, where they collected key tactical intelligence on enemy strength, troop and armored movements, and defensive positions. A post-war army report found that nearly 60 percent of the credible intelligence gathered in Europe came from the Ritchie Boys. Drawing on original interviews and extensive archival research, Henderson vividly re-creates the stories of six of these men in an epic tale of heroism, courage, and patriotism that will not soon be forgotten. -- 2017 time of publication of the book, [-HarperLuxe-]"

Pimp to Preacher

Original Synopsis

"Pimp to Preacher has a total of 162 pages which are papers from writer 'Bruce Henderson, Jr.'. On the streets of Los Angeles, every five-mile radius has its own Superfly, and Bruce Henderson was The Fly of his. At the top of his game back in the day, he knew only free-flowing cash, hip cribs, a cash-cow drug business, brand new cars every month (to scramble the cops off his trail), and wall to wall women. All was going well for Bruce and his pimpdom until one day when his mother gave him a little booklet that packed a big punch. He made the 'mistake' of reading it, and life as he knew it, was never again the same. With every turn of the page, Bruce falls deeper and deeper into a supernatural abyss that seemed to play for keeps. Something or someone meant to own him, consume him. The booklet proved to be his 'Jonah's whale.' It's a rare occasion, indeed, when the walls between this physical world melt away completely, in true Elijahesque-style, only to expose the very Creator. And for Bruce, there seemed to be no limits at all to what the Creator would show him, do for him or take him to! Today, at the touch of his hand, Bruce's healing ministry manifests in ways perhaps never seen before in the Continental U.S. Join Evangelist Bruce Henderson on his shocking, near-catastrophic induction into Christ and ultimate salvation. "Bravo!" raves everyone who's read his story! 2013-04-02 time of publication of the book, [-Createspace Independent Pub-]"

Divided Lives

Original Synopsis

"Divided Lives has a total of 372 pages which are papers from writer 'C. Crane'. This book brings together the horrifying real life stories of women who woke up one day and were not who they thought they were. The government changed and they suddenly no longer had the right kind of blood, the right name, the right family background, the right physical features to be considered a member of society, city, or state. These stories are from German women who were a part of a Jewish-Christian "mixed marriage" and were subsequently persecuted under the Nuremberg laws. Hitler called them "mischling"- half-breeds, however, they have often been passed over in studies of the Holocaust - perhaps because they are often not considered "real Jews." But these women are still struggling with the nightmares of the Third Reich and the Holocaust, the loss of family in concentration camps, and with their own identity-divided between their Jewish and Christian roots. Often their Jewish background was revealed to them only after Hitler's laws were passed. These are the narratives of eight women who remained in Germany, struggling to reclaim their German heritage and their cultural and religious identity. The narratives are compelling and sensitively written, addressing questions of cultural and ethnic identity. 2000-12-01 time of publication of the book, [-Springer-]"
