A SMALL BAND OF BRAVE MEN
It was the most triumphant rescue of modern times, a spectacular end to a terrifying odyssey. For years Arab terrorists had shocked the world with skyjacking and wanton murder of innocents. Then guerrillas hijacked an Air France jetliner, flew the passengers to Uganda and, during a week of agony, bargained for lives. Only hours before the deadline, Israeli commandos in Hercules propjets raced over 2500 miles from Israel to Entebbe airport, and in a blaze of gunfire, freed 103 hostages. ( ... ) Here is the full story of a rescue mission in which a small nation staked its pride and honour to save the lives of its sons and daughters.


À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
William Stevenson

William Henry Stevenson (1 June 1924 – 26 November 2013) was a British-born Canadian author and journalist.

His 1976 book A Man Called Intrepid was about William Stephenson (no relation) and was a best-seller. It was made into a 1979 mini-series starring David Niven.[2] Stevenson followed it in 1983 with another book, Intrepid's Last Case. He published his autobiography in 2012.

In 1976 Stevenson released the  book, 90 Minutes at Entebbe. It was about Operation Entebbe, an operation where Israeli commandos landed at night at Entebbe Airport in Uganda and succeeded in rescuing the passengers of an airliner hi-jacked by Palestinian militants, while incurring very few casualties.  Stevenson's "instant  book" was written, edited, printed and available for sale within weeks  of the event it described.
