After being captured by the Nazis during World War II, a group of American soldiers--of Jewish background or other "undesirable" group--was sent to the concentration camp at Berga, an experience chronicled in a gripping narrative that tells their incredible tale of survival against the odds. 35,000 first printing.

During World War II, prisoners of war were required by the Geneva Conventions to be treated according to established rules. But in late 1944, when a large number of Americans were captured or surrendered during the Battle of the Bulge and elsewhere, their captors had different plans. Those who were Jewish or from some other "undesirable" ethnic or religious group were separated from their fellow captives and sent to the brutal slave-labor camp at Berga. Until now, the story of what these men endured has been a well-guarded secret.
