Summary, etc.:
In the summer of 1941, Germany invaded the western Soviet Union, and by year's end, German squads were systematically killing Jews by the thousands. Amid the chaos, three brothers--Tuvia, Asael and Zus Bielski--narrowly escaped to the dense woods of Belorussia. What started as a desperate fight for survival would become an extraordinary mission to save the Jews from extermination. At its center was the charismatic Tuvia Bielski, who orchestrated the largest armed rescue of Jews by Jews during World War II.
