Striking Back: The 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre and Israel's Deadly Response (Paperback)
From the Hardcover edition.
David K. Shipler, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Arab and Jew
Gratitude is due to Mr. Klein for his painstaking . . . book, the best one could possibly hope for.
Walter Lacquer, The Wall Street Journal
Award-winning journalist Aaron J. Klein tells, for the first time, the complete story of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre and the Israeli counterterrorism operation it spawned. With unprecedented access to Mossad agents and an unparalleled knowledge of Israeli intelligence, Klein peels back the layers of myth and misinformation that have permeated previous books, films, and magazine articles about the shadow war against Black September and other related terrorist groups. In this riveting account, long-held secrets are finally revealed, including who was killed and who was not, how it was done, which targets were hit and which were missed. In the end, Klein shows that the Israeli response to Munich was not simply about revenge, as is popularly believed. By illuminating the tactical and strategic purposes of the Israeli operation, Striking Back allows us to draw profoundly relevant lessons from one of the most important counterterrorism campaigns in history.
[Klein] makes it clear why [the Munich attacks were] a pivotal event in the evolution of global terrorism.
Janet Maslin, The New York Times
