Thanks for this, Jan. On a related note, I must mention "The Enemy I Knew: German Jews in the Allied Military in World War II,"  edited by Steven Karras, pub 2009 Zenith Press. It's a powerful collection of stories by US combat veterans who had been born in Germany, emigrated to the US, and fought against the Nazis in the American army.
