Reviews

"Resounding history of Jewish women who fought the German invaders in World War II. In a vigorous narrative that draws on interviews, diaries, and other sources, Batalion delivers an objective view of past events that are too quickly being forgotten--and a story much in need of telling."
--Kirkus (Starred Review)
"Be not afraid. Judy Batalion brings to life the story of young women who had mindboggling valor. Super heroes. They fought the Nazis. With nerves of steel. You don't have to fight the Nazis (we hope). But you do have to be courageous and honorable. (Well, most of the time). And you will be. There are inspirational books that change your life. And this is one of them."--Maira Kalman, author of And the Pursuit of Happiness
"A remarkable portrait of young Jewish women who fought in the Polish resistance during WWII. . . pays vivid tribute to `the breadth and scope of female courage.'"--Publishers Weekly
"Bold, brave and revelatory, meticulously researched and engagingly written, Batalion transports readers into the harrowing World War II era, where a generation of young, Jewish women banded together to fight an almost unimaginable evil."
--Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz, New York Times bestselling author of Dr. Mutter's Marvels
