This chapter presents a study that uncovers the historic roots of the fear of having the tell-tale “H” (Hebrew) stamped on metal dog tags of Jewish recruits in the American army. Forgotten Victims, the book under review in this chapter, written by Mitchell G. Bard, is the story of the abuse of American citizens and American POWs, some Jewish, who were caught in the German net. Germany's poor treatment of some prisoners was later overshadowed by the horrendous stories leaking out of occupied Europe regarding the treatment of Jews.

Keywords:   Hebrew, metal dog tags, Jewish recruits, American army, Forgotten Victims, Mitchell G. Bard, American POWs, Germany
