Excellent book, Claire does a fabulous job of giving the history of Israel's campaign to destroy Iraq's nuclear facilities. The book was a thrilling read.

This book was a quick read but I felt it was very entertaining. It went into the background of the Israel raid on Iraq's nuclear facility in June 81 and some of the behind the scenes about some of the people involved. I did enjoy the information on the part the Mossad played in gathering information on facility and skill of the pilots was very impressive. A great book if you want to know more about a daring and well executed raid.

This was a very good book on a part of history that not many of us remember or know about. It not only focuses on the Israeli side but on how Saddam came into leadership. When Israel puts their mind to something they find a way to accomplish it. This was a great read.
