The coverage of the Munich Olympics was especially interesting.
I disagree with one of the comments made about the Israeli operatives being presented as heroes, while the book doesn't condemn them it doesn't attempt to judge them at all. It only presents the facts leaving it to the reader to judge for himself.
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.

I found this book to be very lacking. In fact, it appears to be taking advantage of the publicity created by Spielberg's "Munich" and "Vengeance" by George Jonas. Read morePublished on 23 Feb. 2006
