Not quite what I had hoped
on 15 November 2010
If you've seen One Day in September, this book will only be at most about 50% interesting, as the remainder is the same as that. I had hoped that more of the book was about the response to Munich; unfortunately about half the book describes the Munich massacre etc., and only the remainder describes the response to it.
If you've not seen that film, then this is a pretty well written narrative along with some "behind the scenes" details, presumably from ex-Mossad agents, although at the the very end of the book Klein admits that he changes "minor details" for "dramatic effect" - so you're left wondering just how much is true and how much has been buttered up.
One last thing - this Kindle version doesn't appear to have chapter marks so be prepared to add in bookmarks manually if you want to skip between chapters.
