Forged in Fury is a remarkable book, written in white-hot anger about the most abominable evil ever known to mankind -- from early 1941 to April 1945, between five and six million Jews were butchered -- mostly in Eastern Europe -- by citizens of the Third Reich and those who co-operated with them. It tells of the war, the people, the SS officers, the Jewish ghettos, the concentration camps, the resistance, the heroism and the horror. In particular it follows the lives of the Jewish men and women who, in 1945, formed an organization called DIN or "judgment", whose mission it was to avenge those millions of Jews murdered by the Germans.
Between 1945 and 1946 DIN was responsible for over 1,000 deaths. This strange, secret organization continued to exist for more than three decades, in Europe, Israel and elsewhere. At its peak its members comprised farmers, merchants, journalists, government officials, a poet, even ministers of religion, all sharing the same voluntary and consuming task -- to hunt and kill Nazis.
