Tuesday, February 2nd, 2016

Another wonderful review of Operation Thunderbolt appeared in today’s Washington Times. ‘The story of this ever more dramatic story,’ writes Martin Rubin, ‘has been told many times on page and screen. But never better than British historian Saul David does in this meticulously researched, vivid account. He has a knack for making the reader feel he is right there… The raid was one of history’s truly stirring and awe-inspiring events, and Mr David’s gripping book truly does it justice.’ Click here for full review
