The Israeli rescue of the hostages in Uganda is a nearly mythical story which this book does a remarkable job telling. I was enthralled with the hour by hour description of the hijacking as well as the events leading up to the rescue. I was completely captivated during the actual rescue and couldn't stop listening until it was done.
I was also impressed with the way the politicians both within and across parties came together to support such a dangerous and high risk strategy.
It was disappointing (though unfortunately not surprising) to hear that many in the UN tried to condemn Israel for rescuing its civilian hostages and yet remained silent in their condemnation of the terrorists as well as their Ugandian coconspirators.
Overall, it was a quick and enjoyable listen and one which I highly recommend!

Any additional comments?
This was a really enjoyable audiobook. My wife commented in the background: "The only thing I remember about the raid on Entebbe is the movie about the raid on Entebbe"! Well, this certainly fills in the detail in an electric story that doesn't slow down, and doesn't get dry in imparting detail. The narrator was a perfect for engaging the listener, without any over-excitement. The was a great audiobook, and a terrific story.
