Praise

“…the raid section is smartly written, detailed and fast-paced. ‘History book’ and ‘exciting’ are not mutually exclusive terms…There are plenty of Osprey’s usual high-quality images, art and cartography…I especially enjoyed the airport graphics with a detailed timeline and legend of critical locations….This is my first exposure to the ‘Raid’ series and I am impressed.” – livingdice.com (November 2009)

“It is infrequent that your reviewer runs across a book that can truly be called riveting. Yet this one kept me reading into the small hours of the morning. Author Simon Dunstan has provided an excellent edition to this series. His research is top notch and the small sideline notes really add quite a bit to the tale. There are superb photos of the men and equipment involved as well as Osprey’s fine 3D maps that help to clarify how the operation proceeded. The result is a book that I can easily give my highest recommendation.” -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness/modelingmadness.com (December 2009)

“Dunstan ably puts the events of Entebbe into a wider perspective, explaining the airliner hijackings common at the time and detailing the various Palestinian terror groups that were striking at Israel. Indeed the author should be praised for the general readability of the book, which seems more like a novel at times… All in all, this book is a triumph from Osprey. It has started this new series with a veritable bang. I can only hope this series continues in the same vein.” -Karl N. Hoy, Toy Soldier & Model Figure
