The dramatic and definitive account of the 1972 Munich Olympics massacre and the resulting 20-year Israeli ‘Operation Wrath of God’ – one of the most clinical revenge missions in modern history. The book covers the siege and massacre of 11 Israeli athletes and officials. It questions whether the Israelis were killed by Palestinian militants – or inept German police snipers. Hundreds of millions of people watched events unfold on live television, and the consequences reverberate around the Middle East to this day.
