Striking Back (2005), by Aaron J. Klein, begins with a detailed account of the horrific, tragic, and shocking massacre of the Israeli athletes, partaking in the 1972 Munich Olympics. The book then moves on to document the Israeli response to the massacre, including Mossad activity, targeted assassinations, and covert operations deep behind enemy lines. With newly revealed information, and a story that takes us across countries and through different cities, Striking Back is a heart-pounding, real-life, page-turning thriller.
The Israeli government and the Mossad and its operatives, remind Israel’s enemies that they are never safe from the long arm of justice that will be served.
Striking Back is a heartbreaking story of “in each and every generation they arise to destroy us,” yet it remains a fascinating and inspiring must-read.
