It was the most triumphant rescue of modern times. For years Arab terrorists had shocked the world with skyjacking and wanted murder. Then guerrillas hijacked an Air France jetliner, flew the passengers to Uganda and during of agony, bargined for lives. Only hours before the deadline, Israeli commandos raced over 2500 miles from Israel to Entebbe airport, and a blaze of gunfire, freed 103 hostages.
A well written story based upon the documented truth concerning the elaborate details of a heroic rescue by Israeli commandos to free a plane load of countrymen held by a lunatic dictator at the Entebbe Airport. This is not only a heart warming story of heroism, but also revealing in what a well planned and executed raid can accomplish. The Israeli unit performing this rescue is exciting to read about. It makes you feel as though you were there.
