Subtitle: The 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre and Israel’s Deadly Response

An Audie Award Nominee.

    A journalistic account of the events that inspired Speilberg’s motion picture Munich about the massacre of the Israeli Olympic team by Palestine terrorists.
     By the end of the 1972 ordeal at Munich’s Olympic Village, the terrorist group had killed 11 Israeli athletes and coaches, and one West German police officer.
     Five of the 8 members of Black September were killed by police officers during an abortive rescue attempt. The three surviving terrorists were captured but had to be released later in West Germany following the hijacking by Black September of a Lufthansa airliner.
     Back in Israel, Prime Minister Golda Meir vowed to track down those responsible and, in Menachem Begin’s words: “Run these criminals and murderers off the face of the Earth.”
     A secret Mossad unit is mobilized, a list of targets drawn up. Thus begins the Israeli response, a mission that unfolds not over months but over decades.
     The Mossad never spoke about this operation. No one knew the real story, until “Strike Back”. In this riveting account, Aaron Klein peels back layers of myth and misinformation about the “shadow War” against Black September and other terrorist groups.

     AudioFile:
Gut-wrenching…Rudnicki reads with palpable revulsion at the bungling and indifference of the German government…his voice percolates with outrage and disbelief when Klein reveals how Israel’s longstanding campaign for revenge has at times resulted in the deaths of innocent people.”
