Interesting stuff !!!! one historical mistake-the ones that besieged Jerusalem were the Jordanians,Egyptians were moving along the coast line
Foreword to the book by Yitzhak Rabin. "Ben Dunkelman was... there when the Queen's Own Rifles of Canada hit the beaches on D day... and when in 1948 the infant state of Israel was threatened with extinction he... slipped through the lines of his former British allies, and joined the tattered Israeli forces as a volunteer. ...with his experience and training Ben Dunkelman... played a decisive part in the war, helping to break the siege of Jerusalem and... commanded the 7th Brigade that won the war in the north. ...Hollywood could hardly have invented a more swashbuckling, romantic tale..
At least one more Canadian,and a famous one-George Beurling also joined the IAF,but was killed in an accident
Buried in Haifa cemetery
