Publisher's Weekly Review

Although best known to TV viewers as LeBeau on TV's Hogan's Heroes (1965-1971), Robert Clary has written a new memoir, From the Holocaust to Hogan's Heroes: The Autobiography of Robert Clary, offering a much more sobering view of WWII, as he recounts his 31 months in German concentration camps as a Jewish Parisian teenager. After liberation, he began singing in nightclubs and, as a prot?g? of Eddie Cantor, won a position in the revue New Faces of 1952, which also featured newcomers Eartha Kitt, Paul Lynde and fledgling writer Mel Brooks. Decades later, his popularity among daytime viewers as a regular on soaps The Young and the Restless and Days of Our Lives helped promote his recording career. Although flatly written at times, Clary's tale of survival is inspirational. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
