Back in Israel, Prime Minister Golda Meir vows 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 has never spoken about this operation. No one has known the real story. Until now.
In this riveting account, Aaron Klein peels back the layers of myth and misinformation about the "shadow war" against Black September and other terrorist groups.

"Something of a let down"
For a book called Striking Back I am surpised to say when the book focused on the Mossad assassinations it lossed its narrative cohesion. By contrast the first third of book about the Munich Massacre is superb and you can really tell that Klein is passionate about the subject.
All in all good but not great, might have been four star if Rudnicki's narration hadn't started to sound like he was bored of the book around half way through.
