It is the final weeks of World War II. His Majesty's Jewish Brigade, the only all-Jewish fighting unit in the war, goes into combat against the Nazis. In one glorious battle they beat the Nazis back and emerge victorious, only to be pulled from the front days later. It is here that the Brigade's real struggle begins.
Amidst the chaos of post-war Europe, and under the noses of the occupying Allied armies, the men of the Brigade mastermind one clandestine operation after another, forming secret vengeance squads to assassinate Nazi officers in hiding, and engineering the rescue and transportation of Holocaust survivors to Palestine.
'The Brigade', while certain to provoke debate about the moral elements of justice, is at its core a personal drama of three remarkable men who set out to fight a war and in the process help create a nation.
