Plot Summary
They may have been run out of Germany, but a group of Jews eventually got their revenge, courtesy of the U.S. military. Indeed, these men became the perfect weapon for Uncle Sam against Hitler, and now many of them reunite to share tales of boot camp, returning to their former homeland turned enemy territory, D-Day and more. While their knowledge of the German landscape and people made them invaluable assets, it's clear that for them that the war was never anything less than personal.
