    One thought on “The Letters of Jonathan Netanyahu: The Commander of the Entebbe Rescue Force”

    1. It is a great book. He was a remarkable soldier and a beautiful human being. He had a very short life, but what a life.

    2. This young man is such an inspiration. And, he only believed that he was doing what was necessary for his country! Even if you aren't really interested in the political side of Israel, you can read this and appreciate the words of this young soldier and how sacrificial he was. He is a teenager making decisions that most grown men today couldn't even dream of.

    3. This book makes me a take hard look of myself - never mind all the bestseller self-help books out there. He truly changes people's life, whether directly or vicariously through his words.
