Movie Info

"The Ritchie Boys" is the untold story of a group of young men who fled Nazi Germany and returned to Europe as soldiers in US-uniforms. They knew the psychology and the language of the enemy better than anybody else. In Camp Ritchie, Maryland, they were trained in intelligence and psychological warfare. Not always courageous, but determined, bright, and inventive they fought their own kind of war. They saved lives. They were victors, not victims. -- © Official Site

  • This is a film with a story we have not seen before, a story about American troops so unusual it needed a German director to ferret it out.

    This could have been a LOT more informative, but it was so unique that I still happy with it for what I got. One of the funnies parts is how the interrogators capitalized on what they found out was an EXTREME German fear of Russians.
