True to My God and Country

How Jewish Americans Fought in World War II

True to My God and Country explores the role of the more than half a million Jewish American men and women who served in the military in the Second World War. Patriotic Americans determined to fight, they served in every branch of the military and every theater of the war.

Drawing on letters, diaries, interviews, and memoirs, True to My God and Country offers an intimate account of the soul-searching carried out by the young women and men who left home—and their Jewish neighborhoods—for the first time. Many encountered antisemitism among fellow members of the armed forces even as they fought the evils of Nazi Germany and its allies.

True to My God and Country examines how for many the continual antisemitism from fellow soldiers and their interactions with Jewish communities overseas reinforced and bolstered connections to their own American Jewish identities.
