    "A roller coaster ride of revenge and avenge. Inglorious Bastards, Peaky Blinders and Titanic all rolled into one."-Kevin Joseph, Producer, Fulwell 73 Productions"An almost unbelievable true tale of the 1930s. Imagining Nazi swastikas draped across George Washington's portrait feels like a sinister made-for-movie dystopian story."-Susan Turley, Documentary Film Producer and Executive Producer, XRM Media"Newark Minutemen is a fascinating account about America's lost history. The unholy alliance of the mob and FBI prevented the story from being printed until now. An untold family story that was meant to be told."-Steve Katz, Senior Vice President, CBS Corp."The unlikely love affair in Newark Minutemen carries the epic conflict of Romeo and Juliet, West Side Story and the Titanic's Jack and Rose."-Leo Pearlman, Managing Partner and Producer, Fulwell 73"Newark Minutemen tells the inspiring story of how an unlikely group of Jewish boxers helped wake up Depression-era Americans to Nazis on our doorstep. It is the book for anyone interested in understanding how complacency can be our worst enemy and how the Newark Minutemen were a heroic example of how to fight back."-Ethan Tuttle, Congressional intern and University of Maryland student"Leslie K. Barry's narrative brings to life in vivid detail a lost era of heroes who give voice to victims even as authorities turn a blind eye."-Stacy Friedman, Rabbi, Congregation Rodef Sholom"A rare perspective of 1930s American defending their own soil."-Lt. David Hall, United States Navy"Newark Minutemen is a timeless tale of the vigilance, intelligence and surveillance necessary to thwart vulnerabilities against our country."-Robin Abrams, Former Director Investigative Services, Entertainment Security Company"Newark Minutemen is a fascinating story made even more potent by the author's personal connection. A must read!"-Rabbi Stacia Deutsch, New York Times bestselling author"A dramatic tale of the brave Newark Minutemen who with muscular patriotism stopped the American-Nazi's from wiping their feet on the soul of America."-William S. Hochman, short story writer and Newark resident from 1935-1942 who vividly remembers the dangers posed by the German American Bund"A striking and poignant tale of an oft-neglected part of US history, including the rise of a pro-Nazi movement that gathered 20,000 supporters in Madison Square Garden in 1939 and recruited children to attend Nazi summer camps in New York. An important reminder of the dangers of anti-Semitism and white nationalism that are still prevalent in our country today."-Samantha Parent Walravens, award-winning journalist and New York Times acclaimed author"The history of the Nazis rise to power in the US should be part of every high school curriculum. Why do we not learn about this in school? Recognizing the vulnerability of our democracy will inspire my generation to pay attention to what's happening in the world, to become more involved, and to not take our freedom's for granted."-Satchel Kaplan
