At 4:30 AM on the morning of September 5, 1972, a small band of Arab terrorists invaded Munich's Olympic Village and took 11 Israeli athletes hostage. The Arabs' goal: to thrust the Palestinian cause into the world spotlight and free several hundred Arab prisoners. For the next 24 hours, the world watched as the drama unfolded, culminating in a bloodbath at Munich's Furstenfeldbruck airport. Here those momentous, tension-filled hours are recreated in mesmerizing detail, as is the relentless 10-year Israeli manhunt, called Operation "Wrath of God", for those responsible.

Excellent book and documentary. It will make your blood boil at the supreme callousness everyone involved in this debacle. Those poor athletes knowing there was a 99.99% chance that they were going to die because of who they were. People should go to jail for the pure unadulterated incompetence and duplicity. Seriously. One of the best books of this genre I have read, and I don't usually like to read books like this. I was young when this happened, and yes, I saw it on the news and felt bad, but I was at that age, where, stuff like that didn't matter to me. Now, that I'm older, I realize the horror and that those men were humans, not just some names listed by the anchors or read in newspaper.
