Dual Allegiance

An Autobiography

by Ben Dunkelman

A fascinating story of a privileged Toronto youth who rose to fight for the establishment of the state of Israel.
Ben Dunkelman grew up in a wealthy Jewish family in Toronto. Kicked out of several schools for being a hell-raiser, he was sent off to Europe and the Middle East in the 1930s, gaining hard experience that would serve him well in the years to come.
On his return he worked for the family business, but when World War Two came he lost no time in enlisting. Dunkelman describes the war from the ordinary soldier's viewpoint, without embellishment or glorification. Yet he was a hero to his men--and to his country. After the war Dunkelman returned to Canada, but in 1948 he went to war again--this time to fight for the young nation of Israel in the struggle to establish a Jewish state.
Dual Allegiance is the exciting, fast-paced story a man and the passions he was willing to fight for--and if necessary, die for.
