Description

The Israeli raid on Entebbe to rescue the hostages hijacked on the Air France airbus has entered history as one of the most spectacular exploits devised and executed by modern man. It has already been the subject of endless debate and analysis but here is the book that tells it all and brings to life the individuals who planned it and who carried it out.

 

( ... ) Tony Williamson's profound knowledge of international terrorism and above all of the Baader Meinhof gang as enabled him to wite of the hijackers and their accomplices with understading and even sympathy.

 

( ... ) To say that Counterstrike Entebbe reads like an intensely exciting thriller is to miss the point : it is an intensely exciting thriller and even Tony Williamson never devised a more explosive or ingenious plot.

À PROPOS DE CET AUTEUR
Tony Williamson

Tony Williamson ( December 18th, 1932 - June 19th, 1991 ) was born in Manchester ( Greater Manchester, England ). 


His writing career has its roots in his obligatory national service as a young man. While in the Royal Air Force, he began a lifelong association with fellow airman, Dennis Spooner, by writing some amateur efforts. After the war, he accepted a position as a news correspondent for CBS in Canada. On the side, he wrote at least twenty stage plays that were later produced on various anthological television programmes. 


When he returned to Britain, he flirted with soap operas like Coronation Street and Compact. However, by the mid - 1960's, he embarked upon his career of writing spy fiction with the sale of a script to The Mask of Janus. Though he also contributed to its spin - off, The Spies, Tony Williamson swiftly moved on to a more fantastic espionage setting with his first sale to The Avengers in 1965 ( starring Patrick Macnee and Diana Rigg ). 


Following the demise of The Avengers, he worked on a number of programmes on which Dennis Spooner held some measure of creative control as creator or story editor, for ITC Entertainment. 


Aside from his work in television, Tony Williamson wrote several Fontana published thrillers in the 1970's under his own name and at least one : Slade's Marauder ( Souvenir Press, 1980 ) under the pseudonym Steven Cade. 


After heart surgery in 1980, he deliberately slowed his output. Tony Williamson died during a second heart procedure in 1991.
