"Those who think that American Jews have lost their commitment to Israel and dedication to its defense must read A Passion for Israel. Mark Werner has shown how every Jew has a meaningful role to play in strengthening the Jewish state. An important and uplifting book for Americans and Israelis alike."
- Michael Oren, former Israeli ambassador to the United States and Member of Knesset
"Mark Werner is a born storyteller, and Army Fatigues is a continually insightful and compelling tale of a man who set out to do good and succeeded. A poignant memoir, Army Fatigues is sort of a 'City Slickers' with a Jewish twist that will tug at the heart of any committed Jew."
- Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, author of Jewish Literacy and A Code of Jewish Ethics
"Modern Maccabees who eventually struck back... Werner's honest and well-written memoir provides an insider's view of the Holocaust."
- The Jerusalem Post
