Overview


Massacre in Munich describes in breathtaking detail the gripping drama of the events that led to the 1972 massacre of Israeli athletes during the Munich Olympics, as well as the ruthless duel between Israel's secret intelligence service, the Mossad, and the leaders of Black September, the terrorist organization that perpetrated the massacre.
Unlike those pursuing Al Qaeda leaders today, the Israeli agents succeeded in unmasking and killing all of Black September's captains, who operated under sophisticated disguises in Europe and the Middle East. The quest took the Mossad to Paris, Rome, Madrid, Athens, Cyprus, and Lebanon. One of the commandos, Ehud Barak, would become Israel's future Prime Minister. Black September fought back, gunning down Israeli agents in Brussels and Madrid. The bloody duel ended when Black September's leader, Ali Hassan Salameh, nicknamed "the Red Prince," died in a car explosion in Beirut, where he had been tracked down by a mysterious Englishwoman, Erica Mary Chambers, who turned out to be a Mossad agent.
Massacre in Munich does more than catalog Black September's awful crimes and Israel's earch for a way to end its bloody reign. It tells the true story behind one of the central conflicts of our time - Palestinian-Israeli struggle.

    Concise, but not awe-inspriring

    Unlike who these authors worked for (the Mossad and Yitzhak Rabin), this book has much too be desired as it relates to operational details of the most powerful and awe-inspiring organization in history--the Mossad, Israel's secret intelligence agency. As the Black September, a highly amateurish outfit of thugs and gangsters, not professional terrorists, if you ask me, picked the wrong enemy in the Mossad. The Mossad quickly dispatched, eliminated, killed, or wounded nearly every member of Black September until it was totally defunct from the terrorist map. In this book, they also relay that Ali Hassan Salameh was such a cunning sociopath. He was a sociopath, but not cunning, as after the Mossad got through with him, there wasn't much left of him. Good riddance!

    10 Stars for this book

    Very pacy from the first page. Shows the shadowy world of secret services and the game that still exists.
