One Day in September: The Full Story of the 1972 Munich Olympics Massacre and the Israeli Revenge Operation "Wrath of God" - Simon Reeve One Day in September carefully depicts what happened at the 1972 Munich Olympics and the aftermath revenge attacks carried out under Israel's orders.

Reeve is sensitive to all sides of the story, although obviously the book is biased towards the murdered athletes. He does however give the Palestine's a voice to be heard and does not paint Israel to be just victims of a terrible act of terrorism.

I wasn't born during that time (being only 23) and so for me it is interesting to read about the thing that really started it all off. This is a good book to begin with and Reeve's style of writing is very engaging.

I would like to read more on this subject, rather then just having to watch the depressing stories as portrayed on the news.
