Book Description

During the first hot days of July, 1976, the world watched a tense hostage situation unfold in Uganda. Palestinian and German terrorists had hijacked an Air France jet in Athens, then surprised everyone by flying to sanctuary in Idi Amin’s African dictatorship.
The airport at Entebbe provided the perfect haven for the hijackers, and a hellish wait for the 105 captives, who were threatened with execution if certain demands were not met. Israel’s government declared its intentions to negotiate the release of terrorists from its jails; the bold capture of the jet created a tense standoff.
It wasn’t nearly as dramatic as what happened next.
At midnight on July 4, Hercules transport planes loaded with Israeli commandos landed at Entebbe Airport. Traveling 2,500 miles in eight hours had given them the element of surprise. Within minutes, the most dramatic hostage rescue of all time was part of history. The resolve, daring, and skill of Israel’s finest preserved a hundred souls.
This is the story of the rescue at Entebbe, and the planning of the operation by the commander of the rescue force, Jonathan Netanyahu. Interviews with the members of the force, and the author’s gripping narrative, make this extraordinary story impossible to lay aside.

5.0 out of 5 stars fast paced and exciting July 29, 2012
I couldn't put it down. After having done research on this subject I found the book to be accurate. It is written by Yoni's brother, so he had some insight that other authors have lacked. It was a story about the soldiers that flew 2500 miles away from home, landed in hostel territory, and saved their people from certain death. It was a clear and concise victory against terror. It also brought the human element in, and you get a feel about who Honing was.

5.0 out of 5 stars A true hero... August 5, 2014
Verified Purchase
I read this book in two days. It was very readable. It should be assigned reading for any leader. If you have any interest in Israeli military history, this is a must read. I did have a hard time remembering who was who, like Adam's rank. Hardly a deal breaker. Very well done and worth every penny!

5.0 out of 5 stars Chilling April 11, 2012

This book is both about the life Jonathan Netanyahu, his character, and the operation where he fell.

Some may balk at the dual nature of it, but this book served as a good resource and introduction to both.

Recommended for those interested in the subjects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorrow in triumph February 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
This is totally engrossing. Yoni is somewhat of an enigma, so unlike most people. That is what makes him a true hero and able to save so many lives. Unfortunately, he gave his own life in the process.
