Summary The Ritchie Boys tells the story of a group of young Jewish men who fled Nazi Germany only to return to Europe as United States soldiers who knew the psychology and the language of the enemy better than anybody else. At the U.S. Army base of Camp Ritchie, in the mountains of Maryland, they were trained in intelligence and psychological warfare. Though not always courageous, they were determined, bright, inventive, fought their own kind of war and saved lives. Their mission: gather intelligence from behind enemy lines and as interrogators as the Allied armies moved east through France and into Germany.
