5.0 étoiles sur 5 Incredible heroism in history's most memorable rescue. 20 décembre 2002
Par M. D Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is the incredible story of one of the most heroic rescues of modern times, an incident that has become a virtual legend without equal in the archives of anti-terrorist operations.
There can be few readers who are not already familiar with the spectacular rescue by Israeli forces at Entebbe Airport, Uganda during July 1976. A rescue that has been committed to both film, documentary and the written page.
This captivating book by William Stevenson records in minute detail the hour by hour events throughout the period of this critical event, beginning with the actual in-flight hijacking of Air France Flight 139 en route from Athens to Paris, carrying over 262 passengers and crew.
A hijacking endorsed and supported by the then President of the Republic of Uganda, Idi Amin. Possibly the first time that any modern nation and it's leader actually became the protector and spokesman for terrorists and political blackmailers. The writer taking time to document the `behind the scenes' sponsorship and relationship between the hijackers, Uganda, Libya and Palestinian terrorist groups towards this methodically planned and carefully executed act of air piracy by Palestinian terrorists.
The book continues at a rapid pace and is difficult to put down. It may appear dated but it's relevancy to our day is unquestionable.
From the outset, the book shows in alarming clarity the political climate of the time in that no country other than Israel was prepared to do little other than negotiate with the terrorists. What is meant by this is that no other country was prepared to take on the responsibility of a rescue mission of any description. (One is left to ponder how much the heroic actions of the Israeli armed forces during this incident have had on the change in Worldwide perception of dealing with hijackings and terrorist attacks of this nature which had previously served to bully and hold to ransom democracies across the globe.)
The book illustrates that with the sudden early release of some 47 passengers, coinciding with the separation of the Israeli/Jewish hostages from the others, the obvious agenda of the terrorist mission became only too apparent. Israel and Israelis were the target.
This excellent book reconstructs the critical events throughout this incident, including the terrorists' demands, ultimatums and deadlines towards the bartering of the innocent passengers for convicted terrorists being held in custody. The individual make-up of the terrorist group is also examined, as are the political and military reactions of those on the Israeli side, together with the military preparations for the rescue mission.
This is a rivetting read of how, just hours before the deadline for the execution of the hostages expired, Israeli commandos travelled silently over 2,500 miles from Israel to Entebbe, landed in darkness at the airport, fought with Ugandan troops & the terrorists and rescued some 103 hostages taking them back to the safety of the Jewish state.
On this scale, as an operation of pure heroism this surely must stand alone. As a military task it was considerable, almost miraculous. To travel such a distance across International boundaries to carry out such an action is surely without precedent. One can only stand back in admiration for those rescuers described in this book.
The writer describes how sadly, the Israeli operational leader Colonel Yehonatan Netanyahu, was killed during the rescue. Known among his friends, family and compatriots as `Yoni', the heroism of this leader of the young Jewish state is legendary. Words alone are difficult to find & perhaps inadequate to pay tribute to `Yoni' and his men. As an ex-serviceman myself, I can only say that everyone that I have served with holds them in the highest reverence and honour. (Most readers will be aware that Yoni's brother, Benjamin Netanyahu, later became Israeli Prime Minister.)
This indeed is an essential addition to anyone's library on Middle East history. In a time when security and safety during air travel is again at the forefront of everyone's minds following the September 11th atrocities, this is a stirring reminder of how the heroism of ordinary people will not, and indeed cannot, submit to the demands of those who would hold the innocent to ransom amid threats of violence. Highly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Book 8 mars 2000
Par Joe Mundia - Publié sur Amazon.com
I read this book in 1981. It was captivating. I knew some of the characters and places mentioned in the book (associated to Kenya). I was very young when it happend and when I read the book. I was in Kenya and not far from the action itself. The book I read had title related to Operation Thunder bolt-The Entebbe Raid. I am currently searching for this book. Kenya helped a lot in the rescue since the Hacules`s refuel in Kenya before the last trip to Entebbe. There was fear for retaliation for the help, but Kenyans helped anyway. Sure as death, retaliation came in form of a bomb in a Nairobi Hotel. What a world we live in!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Thunderbolt out of Isreal! 30 juillet 2009
Par ThorBjorn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Here it is!
This is the narrative of the greatest anti-terrorist action of the 1970s!

In June of 1976, Air France flight 139 from Athens, was hijacked by a combined terrorist action. This collaboration was composed of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the ultra-leftist/anti-Zionist, Revolutionary Cell from Germany. The aircraft was landed in Uganda, and the terrorists were sheltered by the depraved dictator Idi Amin Dada.

While international politicos blathered on in their typical inneffectual manner, Isreal deployed paratroops on a valiant rescue mission that came to be known as Operation Thunderbolt. 103 hostages, 83 of whom were Isreali citizens, were rescued and returned home safely.

Sadly, their were two people who did not survive this event:
-75 year old Dora Block was murdered in the hospital by Idi Amin's agents.
-Lieutenant-Colonel Yonni Netanyahu, who commanded the mission.

This review is dedicated to them.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Terrorism is more than 99% politics and we aren't in 1976 17 septembre 2012
Par Dalton C. Rocha - Publié sur Amazon.com
I read this book, here in Brazil, on a translation to the Portuguese.
I'll show you five good things, in this book:
1- This book is very well organized and concise.
2- The last chapter is about complete three telephonic comunications, between Idi Amin and Barl-Lvei, a Jew and Israeli.
3- Before the last chapter, there's an excellent chapter with the debate between Israeli ambassador and Ugandan ambassador on OUN, in New York.
4- This book describes the truth, under fight therms.
5- About the choice between to release Jihadists or the lauching of the operation Thunderbolt, there's some chapters.
In a simple sentence if we were on September, 1976 , I would be probably, giving five stars for this book. Even today, I think that the author made the best to write this book, but we are on September 2012. Terrorism is more than 99% politics and we aren't in 1976.
Using today's knowledge that the author of this book , I read on wikipedia (in English) these sentences: "Sir William Samuel Stephenson, CC, MC, DFC (23 January 1897 - 31 January 1989) was a Canadian soldier, airman, businessman, inventor, spymaster, and the senior representative of British intelligence for the entire western hemisphere during World War II. He is best known by his wartime intelligence codename Intrepid. Many people consider him to be one of the real-life inspirations for James Bond.[2] Ian Fleming himself once wrote, "James Bond is a highly romanticized version of a true spy. The real thing is ... William Stephenson."
Even so, Sir William Samuel Stephenson isn't alive, but many things that he thought and wrote in this book, also aren't correct today.
The first is that, at least on the translation to the Portuguese that I read, there isn't the word "Jihad" on this book. And all the fight against Israel and Jews as by definition, a Jihad. The author forgot that the terrorist action described in this book was for a Islamic reason.
Second on the introduction the author, even so educated, prepared and with so many titles and medals, forgots that Entebbe was just a small tactical defeat to Islamic Jihad.
A total of 102 hostages were rescued, seven Jihadists killed and about 45 Ugandan militaries killed. 4 hostages and one Israeli commando were also killed. Israeli commandos destroyed 11 MiG-17 aircraft on soil.
In this book, one of the last chapters reproduces press news published just some days after this operation.
All praising the Israelis and I must ever give my congratulations, for the persons that made this operation possible.
But even so, terrorism is more than 99% politics, against less than 1% of fight and we aren't in 1976.
Under tactical therms Jihadists( called in this book "terroristas" - "terrorists" in English) were defeated, but in the most important estrategic therms, Entebbe wasn't a real estrategic defeat because of these reasons:
1- Idi Amin (c. 1925 - 16 August 2003) fell in 1979 and scaped to Saudi Arabia and died there. Idi Amin's fall came not from this operation, but real madness. Wikipedia itself writes about the end of Idi Amin's government in Uganda:"Uganda-Tanzania War (usually referred to in Uganda as the Liberation War) was fought between Uganda and Tanzania in 1978-1979, and led to the overthrow of Idi Amin's regime. Idi Amin's forces included thousands of troops sent by Muammar Gaddafi, and some Palestinian support."
2- Never any terrorist organization ever defeated any army. Even small armies have defeated "powerfull" terrorist organizations, in military therms. Uruguayan Army defeated the so called "Tupamaros", in the first years of 1970 decade. But terrorism is more than 99% politics against less than 1% real fight. Yes, in 1970 decade, the small and weak Uruguayan Army defeated the so called "Tupamaros", a Marxist terrorist group, but today Uruguayan president is himself a "former" Tupamaro. Hundreds of Uruguayan militaries or policemen are in jails today. After all, the so called "Tupamaros" won the fight in political and psicological war in Uruguay. In Argentina, in 1976, Videla defeated only militarly, in a few months, the World's two biggests urban guerrillas of 1970 decade: the Montoneros and ERP in Argentina. Politically, as in the case of Uruguay, Brazil, etc. "military victory" was doomed, by political victory of the former "terrorists" becoming powerfull and very corrupt politicians. Yes, in Argentina Videla defeated (only militarly) Montoneros and ERP, in a few months, the two biggests urban guerrillas in all the world, in 1970 decade. But today, Videla is serving dozens of life in prision sentences and Argentina is under the government of a "former Montonera" Cristina Kirchner. Thousands of Argentine militaries and policemen are in jails, while not a single Montonero or Erpista is in jail for his crimes at these same times. About the particulat terrorist organization treated in this book, the PLO, under ever new names, the real leader of this operation was Mr. Yasser Arafat(1929-2004) was then called "terrorist" when this book was first printed. After some decades later the "terrorist" Arafat became a Nobel Peace Prize winner and died very rich, in power and very respected.
3- The author predicts the decadency of Islamic terror, at the introduction of this book. The opposite became true. Since at least 1973, United States was giving money to PLO and Arafat. The author remembers that the airplane was from Air France, but the author forgets that many occidental European countries in the year of 1976 had openly PLO offices, even France itself among then.
4- The real victory against Islamic terror would come, only when all Islamic oil and gas would be replaced, by alternatives. Islamic Jihad has nothing, except on its façade, with Palestianian fight for another country. Jihad is the real problem. Islam without western money will be doomed and will fall under civil war anarchies and wastelands. At OUN an Somalian ambassador is remembered in one of the three lasts chapters of this book preaching against Israel, but after less than thirteen years later, Somalia became an Islamic civil war itself, and the last communist/Islamic Somalian dictator scaped full with gold and US dollars to live in exile in a big mansion, in Zimbabwe today.
Someone that would read this book would tell me why to give just three stars, for a book made by a man such as Sir William Samuel Stephenson (1897 - 1989) but the author just didn't wrote the real problem behind this hijacking was Islamic Jihad, not just a few "terrorists" and the Islamic mad dictator Idi Amin. Tactically he wrote the truth, but strategically, he missed the target, than three stars for this whole book today, in our times.
