Observer and The Week

In today’s Observer, Ben Shephard praises Saul’s new book as ‘meticulously researched, skilfully constructed, carefully balanced and absorbing… Combining the copious literature with interviews with participants, David tells the tale in a novelistic way, almost hour by hour, cutting from the hostages in the sweltering old terminal building in Entebbe to the government offices and military training grounds in Israel. The tension builds steadily.’ It was also chosen as The Week‘s Book of the Week, with quotes from the previous reviews in the Mail on SundaySunday TelegraphLiterary Review and Jewish Chronicle.
