Professor Leah Garrett speaks about her recent publication, X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos of World War II. X Troop follows the real stories of the eponymous X Troop, a secret commando unit of young Jewish refugees who were trained in counterintelligence and advanced combat to deliver decisive blows against the Nazis. Acclaimed scholar Leah Garrett draws on extensive original research, including interviews with the last surviving members of the X Troop unit.
