Segment 15


Baum goes on to discuss his career after the war. In 1948, he worked with the Israelis during that war. He advised them on battle tactics while they were in the US. The Israelis had acquired some light tanks and they asked Baum to train their tank battalion. He met with various groups of Israelis before the FBI ordered them to stop operations. They just moved to a different building. The interview ends with Baum looking through photographs of his time in service and his trips back to Europe.
