On July 4, 1976, at the age of thirty, Lt. Col. Jonathan Netanyahu commanded and led the most daring commando operation in modern military history: the raid on Entebbe, Uganda, that successfully freed 103 hostages from international terrorists. Only one life on the astoundingly efficient Israeli team was lost, that of Jonathan Netanyahu. Yet although he died young, the letters he wrote to his family and friends reveal an inner life as rich and dramatic as his legendary army career. Here is the eloquent and moving testament of Israel's most celebrated war hero and the brother of its future prime minister. The letters of Jonathan Netanyahu introduce you to a man brimming with dreams, doubts, and unshakable love for his people. And soaring hope for the future and the nation of Israel.
