Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
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.”

In an extremely well written story, O'Donnell weaves together a tale of espionage and intrigue as five Jewish refuges from Nazi Germany return to Hitler's home land to help defeat the Nazis in the final day of the war. Supported by recently declassified documents from the National Achieves and personnel interviews with the participants, O'Donnell brings together an incredible untold story of heroism, danger and personnel sacrifice. A great read about real life heroes. Move over James Bond.
