Having fought in the War, author Morris Beckman was the founder member of the 43 Group of Jewish ex-servicemen who attacked and destroyed Mosley's emergent Fascist party in a protracted campaign in the late 1940s.

The Jewish Brigade Reviews

'A fitting memorial to those Jews who, at a time when being a Jew was synonymous with being a victim, were determined to take up arms as a Jewish entity and against their own enemies.' * The Literary Review *
