New York Times Book Review

This Sunday a rave review of Operation Thunderbolt by brilliant spy novelist Alan Furst will appear in the New York Times Book Review. Furst writes: ‘David…has written what will most likely be the definitive work on the subject and produced a tense and riveting account of what has come to be known as the Entebbe Raid. By means of extraordinarily deep research, David essentially lets the characters speak for themselves…. David’s exploration of the various conflicts generates a high level of drama and tension for the reader, even though the outcome is known. This is the achievement of a masterly, first-rate historian. He is also a master at detailing the chaotic action of combat.’ Click here for the full review
