Do you guys know of any books written about soldiers that were Jews in WW2. I was thinking about that earlier and it's a very interesting subject to me.

Here are three books you might find interesting:
"Hitler's Jewish Soldiers: The Untold Story of Nazi Racial Laws and Men of Jewish Descent in the German Military" by Bryan Mark Rigg
"The Jewish Brigade: An Army With Two Masters, 1944-45" by Morris Beckman
"The Brigade: An Epic Story of Vengeance, Salvation, and World War II" by Howard Blum

Richard Rashke's Escape From Sobibor recounts the 1943 Sobibor Death Camp uprising which was organized and led by Lt. Sasha Pechersky, a Jewish POW. This book was the basis for a film of the same name which starred Rutger Hauer as Sasha Pechersky.
