Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team

Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team - George Jonas
[terrorists]while waiting for departure...never sat together,


shit this computer is whack

okay test test test... seems to be better now.

anyways, as the half-completed blockquote relates, this book "feels real," revealing that terrorists don't sit together before the flight but nervously look at each other. this 'feels' like insider information, but simultaneously, we wonder if jonas is doing a service to the world. who will read this book? well, a hijacker of course. and now they know.

other than this issue, this book, which was the foundational work for steven spielberg's "munich," is tightly-written, exciting, and... possibly fictional? it seems there is much on the internet and academic inquiry which establishes errors and alleged incongruities in the work. and jonas was a novelist before he wrote this book...

so , as long as you accept that this is probably a very well-researched but fictional work, 4/5
