The British government finally agrees to send a brigade of 5, Jewish volunteers from Palestine to Europe to fight the German army. But when the war ends and the soldiers witness firsthand the horrors their people have suffered in the concentration camps, the men launch a brutal and calculating campaign of vengeance, forming secret squads to identify, locate, and kill Nazi officers in hiding.
Their own ferocity threatens to overwhelm them until a fortuitous encounter with an orphaned girl sets the men on a course of action--rescuing Jewish war orphans and transporting them to Palestine--that will not only change their lives but also help create a nation and forever alter the course of world history.

Though they had relatively little combat experience, many of those in the brigade returned to Israel after the war and helped organize the Palmach the military branch of the Hagana , which, after the war of independence, would become the IDF. Although the official history of the Jewish Brigade Group a unit of some 5, Jews who fought with the British Eighth Army in Italy in the waning months of the conflict has been written, Blum Wanted! The Search for Nazis in America breaks new ground by looking into the clandestine operations that occurred after the shooting had stopped.
Once they learned the true extent of the holocaust, soldiers of the brigade began using intelligence reports to pinpoint the location of former SS officers and camp guards. The enraged Jewish troops took vengeance into their own hands, eventually slaying hundreds of Nazi death dealers.
The Brigade: An Epic Story of Vengeance, Salvation & World War II
Blum follows the story of three men Israel Carmi, Johanan Peltz and Arie Pinchuk in detail, interviewed dozens of others, read unpublished personal memoirs and had Hebrew-language documents translated for him. During the war, the more daring Jewish soldiers formed a secret unit that appropriated British supplies trucks, weapons and food and diverted them to ships heading illegally for Palestine The plan included the "repatriation" of thousands of war orphans, who were clandestinely taken from displaced person camps and smuggled to Palestine.
The underground Jewish Haganah figured prominently in these operations, which contributed directly to the creation of Israel.
