At the height of World War II, with the Third Reichs final solution in full operation, a small group of Jews who had barely escaped the Nazis did the unthinkable: They went back. Spies now, these men took on a dangerous mission behind enemy lines. They Dared Return is their storya tale of adventure, espionage, love, and revenge.
January Magazine, 11/2/10 "There are so many remarkable things about They Dared Return one barely knows where to begin...[It] compares easily to the most engaging thrillers you might care to read, but the fact that none of this is fiction makes the story all the more compelling. A compelling and thought-provoking book." Magill Book Reviews "Memorializes the legacy of a group of America's little-known heroes...This book should be required reading by every American today, no exceptions!" Martyrdom and Resistance, May/June 2012 "Much has been written about Jews as victims during the war. Not nearly enough has been written about Jews as fighters. Patrick K. O'Donnell's volume They Dared Return: The Story of Jewish Spies Behind the Lines in Nazi Germany is thus very welcome and important, and tells a unique and little known story."
