Jewish Values: Yoni Netanyahu: Commando at Entebbe

Publication Year: 
Number of Pages: 
120 p.
Yoni Netanyahu died young, in the service of his country. Remembered as the hero of Entebbe, the daring Israeli military operation to rescue Jewish hostages being held in Uganda's Entebbe Airport (July 4, 1976), Yoni's full, short life is chronicled here in one of the publishers' JPS Young Biography series. The writing is enlived by many quotes from people who knew and admired the young IDF soldier, as well as by his own writing. Israel has many heroes and Yoni is a particularly appealing one to young people, as are the circumstances of his life and death. A classic biography that deserves to be read by those born long after the Entebbe rescue mission transfixed the world.
