January’s book
GI Jews – How World War II changed a Generation by Deborah Dash Moore

Moore charts the lives of 15 young Jewish men through oral histories, letters and interviews to learn what they faced in military service and tried to make sense of its demands. She shows how military service in World War II transformed this generation of Jews, reshaping Jewish life in America and abroad. These men challenged perceptions of Jews as simply victims of the war and encouraged Jews throughout the diaspora to fight for what was right. At the same time, service strengthened Jews' identification with American democratic ideals, even as it confirmed the importance of their Jewish identity. GI Jews is a powerful, intimate portrayal of the costs of a conflict that was at once physical, emotional, and spiritual, as well as its profound consequences for these hitherto overlooked members of the "greatest generation."

Club moderator
Marc Liebman, a retired Navy Captain and Naval Aviator who is a Vietnam and Desert Storm combat veteran. He is the author of nine successful novels and an amateur historian who has been writing and lecturing about American Jews who have made significant contributions to American Military History.
