Who would believe that the bite of a small dog would lead to the unfolding of a chain of events resulting in the discovery of Private Finkelstien's grave in a British War Ceremony in Israel?
Who is Finkelstein and why was he, a soldier with an obviously Jewish name, buried under the sign of a cross?  My father is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery.
