  • X Troop is brilliantly researched, utterly gripping history

    Alex Kershaw, author of The First Wave
  • Gripping... Garrett's chief strength is her ability to relight the lamps of the past so that they glow anew

    The Times
  • This is Inglourious Basterds but much better. Because it is the real story of clandestine Jewish fighters wreaking havoc against the Nazi war machine

    Norman Ohler, author of Blitzed
  • This dramatic, previously untold story of extraordinary covert valour and victory takes readers all across the European front... A rousing and redefining portrait of an, until now, overlooked group of dedicated warriors

    Booklist
  • A compelling read... Garrett's evocation of the tension and drama of the many clandestine operations in Europe undertaken by X-Troopers is gripping

    Sydney Morning Herald
  • Gripping... Garrett's chief strength is her ability to relight the lamps of the past so that they glow anew

    James Owen, The Times
  • Leah Garrett's X Troop is brilliantly researched, utterly gripping history: the first full account of a remarkable group of Jewish refugees-a top-secret band of brothers-who waged war on Hitler

    Alex Kershaw, New York Times best-selling author of The Longest Winter, The Bedford Boys, and The Liberator
  • This is Inglorious Basterds-but much better. Because it is the real story of clandestine Jewish fighters wreaking havoc against the Nazi war machine

    Norman Ohler, New York Times best-selling author of Blitzed and The Bohemians
  • A compelling read . . . Garrett's evocation of the tension and drama of the many clandestine operations in Europe undertaken by X-Troopers is gripping

    Sydney Morning Herald
  • Part history and part mystery, X-Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos of World War II tells a compelling and little known story about an improbable group of "British" soldiers who made an important contribution to the war effort. Their transformation from interned "enemy aliens" to soldiers with high security clearances is fascinating

    Deborah E. Lipstadt, author of Antisemitism Here and Now
