Shadow Strike, by Yaakov Katz (2019, St. Martin’s Press), is the riveting, fascinating, newly-released must-read account of the 2007 bombing of the Syrian nuclear reactor by Israel.  Under the cover of total secrecy, and unknown to the world, Syria had almost achieved a fully functioning nuclear reactor, hidden from the eyes of all, before Israel destroyed it in a mission of stealth and daring courage.

The book is superbly well researched and well written.  Once again, Israel’s leadership rose to the challenge to protect the Jewish State, as well as world safety, as it unilaterally acted against the threat of annihilation by a Syrian terrorist regime.

Shadow Strike is a wonderful addition to any library, and appropriate for mature and interested readers of all ages.
