Summary
In the mid-1970s, plane hijacks were an almost weekly occurrence. Palestinian and pro-Palestinian terrorists targeted Western airlines, and it seemed as if the world's security forces were powerless to stop them. On the afternoon of 27 June 1976, a scheduled Air France flight from Tel Aviv to Paris was hijacked by German and Palestinian terrorists and flown to Entebbe in Uganda, ruled by one of Africa's bloodiest and most unpredictable tyrants, Idi Amin. Forty years on, Saul David tells the extraordinary story of Operation Thunderbolt using previously classified documents from five countries - Israel, the UK, the US, France and Germany - and personal interviews with more than twenty participants
