Book Nook: X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos Who Helped Defeat the Nazis by Leah Garrett


Listen to Vick Mickunas' 2022 interview with author Leah Garrett for the paperback release of X Troop: The Secret Jewish Commandos Who Helped Defeat the Nazis

If I really like a book I'll go for the Book Nook Double Dip, I'll interview the author for the hardcover release and then do a second interview for the paperback release. Doesn't a double dip sound really refreshing right now with this scorching weather we have been having lately?

I really liked Leah Garrett's book. And in this second interview we covered lots of new ground. So much to like in this book. Now I think I'll help myself to a couple of scoops of peach ice cream. Yum. So refreshing.

Ooh, and the paperback release has a great new cover, too! And in this interview Leah mentioned that she plans to keep updating the book as more information on the top secret X Troop has been coming to light.

The Book Nook on WYSO is presented by the Greene County Public Library with additional support from Washington-Centerville Public LibraryClark County Public LibraryDayton Metro Library, and Wright Memorial Public Library.
