Acclaimed scholar Leah Garrett, Hunter College, will discuss her new book, "X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos of World War II," the first full account of a top-secret unit of Jewish refugees who were trained by Britain in counterintelligence and advanced combat to deliver decisive blows against the Nazis. Garrett draws on extensive original research, including interviews with the last surviving members of the X Troop, recently declassified British military records, and wartime diaries, to tell their remarkable story.
