About the Author

Ellin Bessner is a journalist and a professor of journalism at Centennial College in Toronto.


"One of the first books to be released by the Toronto-based New Jewish Press may turn out to be one of its most impressive. Double Threat by Ellin Bessner leaves no stones unturned in its telling of the full-blooded saga of the heroic participation of Jewish men and women in the Canadian military during the Second World War. It's a worthy topic, and one that, surprisingly, has never been covered in such depth before. For that reason, the book has the feel of a popular Canadian Jewish classic, comparable, say, to None Is Too Many or Canada's Jews: A People's Journey." -- Bill Gladstone * Canadian Jewish News *
"That we now have a treasure trove of information to which we have never before been privy is beyond important and will help us to fill out our understanding of Canada's and the Jewish community's war experience." -- Jennifer Shaw * Canadian Jewish Studies *
"Bessner has written a very readable and engaging story on the challenges and obstacles (not the least of which was antisemitism) confronted by the serviceman and servicewoman at home and in the battlefields." -- Sonia Smith, McGill University * AJL Reviews, May/June 2019 *
