In the early hours of September 5, 1972, members of the ultraviolent Palestinian terrorist faction Black September scaled the perimeter fence surrounding the Olympic Village in Munich. Their target was the temporary home of the Israeli Olympic team. Within 24 hours, 11 Israelis, five terrorists, and a German policeman were dead.

Based largely on exhaustive investigation for the Oscar-winning documentary, One Day in September is the definitive account of the tragedy. Simon Reeve has gathered extraordinary information from a number of sources, including recently released Stasi files and interviews with key figures, including the families of the hostages, politicians, policemen, advisors, fellow athletes, media figures, and even the lone surviving member of the group that carried out the attack. Reeve's control over his material is admirable. He vividly paints images of the individuals involved, humanizing a narrative that cracks and buzzes with the compact tension of those 24 hours. At the same time, he provides the background to the attack, filling in vital historical context from the distant and recent past, such as the Arab-Jewish dispute that produced this and other terrorist actions and their responses.

Reeve conveys the public horror of Jews being incarcerated on German soil, which led the German authorities to make crucial judgments, with tragic results. Fatal errors were made that can only be fully understood through the underlying dynamics of not only Middle East history, but also postwar European politics, individual and institutional arrogance, inexperience, and political pressure--including from the International Olympic Committee. Reeve follows up the events of that day by exposing the full extent of the Israeli revenge mission, which over the next 20 years hunted down and killed those responsible for the attack. He has not only written a compelling book, but provided a considerable service in allowing readers to understand the forces of hatred and history that conspired toward inevitable, but no less tragic human consequences.

Those who were a part of the huge live media audience that watched helplessly as events unfolded will undoubtedly experience again the sense of dread at recalling those traumatized, shackled figures led out from the Olympic Village to their fate on a German airfield. Those who make the mistake of thinking the dark days of international terrorism are history will read One Day in September and remember that the same underlying tensions still cast shadows over our present and our future. --Fiona Buckland, Amazon.co.uk -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Journalism at its finest 15. Juli 2000
Von TS
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
With such an emotionally and politically-charged topic, one of this novel's greatest accomplishments is its objectivity. Its other accomplishments include some of the most thorough research I've seen in a while, superb writing, and a style that keeps such thorough reporting interesting. Reeve reports on every aspect of every crime related to the events of September 5, 1972, including preceeding terrorist attacks that explain the future behavior of Black September, and attacks by Israeli Wrath of God agents following the games.
What still strikes the reader hardest is Reeve's unwavering objectivity, even when dealing with the mass murder of civillians, whether by Black September Terrorists or by Israeli inteligence operatives. Reeve is not once lured into editorializing on the events, but rather presents all the facts, both sides of the story, and others' opinions and allows the reader to draw his or her own conclusions. Consider this purchase money well-spent.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Definitive Account re: Munich Olympics Tragedy 30. Mai 2000
Von M. Alper
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Simon Reeve has offered a compelling and definitive treatment of the events of September 5, 1972, when members of Black September occupied the building housing the male members of the Israeli Olympic team at the Munich Olympics. The book also covers the "revenge" against the perpetrators by the Israeli Intelligence organizations.
What I enjoyed most about the book was that it incorporated journalistic-style reportage with pathos that brought to life the dead Israeli athletes, and also provided a human element to the motivations of the members of Black September who planned and participated in this extremely sad and tragic event. There will, perhaps, be those who would prefer the demonization of the individuals who were part of Black September, but by treating these individuals as human beings, the events of September 5, 1972 have an added resonance for the reader that does not lesson the horror of the event.

5.0 von 5 Sternen An amazing book. 20. Juni 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
This is a spectacularly compelling read. Anyone who liked Black Hawk Down will find much to fascinate here. The book is also fair-minded, and does not minimize the role played by any of the many groups (not just Jews and Arabs) who were party to Munich. Superb.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Deeply Disturbing 13. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I started this book the other day. Whilst reading it I recoiled in amazement at the blunders and blatantly incompetent German officials and their complete lack of regard for the seriousness of the situation. Their determination for the Games to continue.
I am Jewish and my opinion may be clouded, however, the book represents the various parties involved well. It captures the wariness of the Israeli team in entering the Games, and reflects individual athletes feelings about stepping once more onto German soil. I for one completely understand for the obvious reason. I still have trepidations now 50 years on. Imagine their trepidation not even 25 years on!
Above all this book reflects the way people tend to ignore or trivalise major events. Not just where they involve Jews, but other events throughout the world. Someone has reviewed this book saying 'if you liked Black Hawk Down'. Black Hawk Down involved American soldiers, trained and employed to fight. The incompetencies involved may be similar, but these were Israeli athletes. Their fate was in the hands of a country who had tried to wipe out the religeon.
I realise that the Germans were well aware of this and the book makes this very clear. But I can't help feeling that more was possible to prevent tragedy.
Why weren't the assualt team properly equiped? Why was there no communication between the Israelis (who have dealt with similar situations) and the German officials. The list goes on.
This book is deeply moving, and the events of 5th September 1972 will echo for eternity.

4.0 von 5 Sternen One Day in Hell 23. Januar 2001
Von Brian D. Rubendall - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"One Day in September" is a compelling and unblinking account of the Black September raid on the 1972 Munich Olympics that left five Palestinian terroists, 11 Israeli athletes and one German policeman dead. Reeve shows how Palestinian fanatcism, Israeli defiance and German police incompotence led to the tragedy. He also gives the background stories of the victims, putting a face to the names of the dead. The story is played out across a canvass of the Arab-Israeli conflict, of which Reeve gives a good overview for the less informed.
The second half of the book, which focusses on the Isreali revenge operation called "Wrath of God," is not as strong. Though a vital part of the overall story, the book is too brief to give the proper treatment to the myriad of assassinations that follwed the disaster. After a while it all starts to run together until both sides seem like a couple of warring mafia families.
Overall, Reeve is an excellent journalist and a good writer who knows how to tell a story. And in this case, he has a sad story to tell indeed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fascinating and well researched book. 11. Oktober 2000
Von Eric Carlson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
One Day in September is a fascinating and well researched book about the events surrounding the 1972 Munich Olympics takeover and subsequent massacre of members of the Israeli Olympics team by the Palestinian terrorist group Black September.
The book provides extraordinary details of events leading up to and during the takeover, the negotiations to free the hostages, the events at the airport in which all of the Israeli hostages and many of the terrorists were killed, and the aftermath; including the "Operation Wrath of God" (the Israeli retaliation), the cover-up of mistakes and miscues made by the German government and police, and the thoughts of survivors on all sides in retrospect. There is also a chapter dedicated to providing a short but comprehensive history on what led to the current problems in the Middle East - an excellent lesson for someone like myself who is a novice in this department.
This is one of the most interesting books I've ever read. I had a hard time putting it down once I started reading it. It is a must read for those who have an interest in history, and/or have their own personal memories of the Olympic games of Munich, 1972.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A STUDY OF THE MUNICH MASSACRE IN EXACTING DETAIL 19. März 2004
Von MJG - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is the entire story of the Munich Olympic Massacre. From the planning stages through to the exploding helicopters carrying the bound Israeli hostages, this book is a magnificent piece of research.
Black September was the Palestinian terrorist group responsible for the massacre. Named for the Jordanain military actions against the Palestinians in September of 1970 (the name had nothing to do with Israel, as one reviewer erroneously stated), Black September organized the raid on the Olympic village with the assistance of an apathetic East German Secret Police Force (the Stazi). The pathetic West German police forces at first tried to help, but after a certain point many simply refused to assist.
The results were horrifying. The news event was possibly the first live-action 24 hour news event ever broadcast and changed the way crises were broadcast on television forever.
Also included in the book is the story of the Israeli Secret Service's (Mossad) Operation Wrath of God, which was the manhunt for the perpetrators of the massacre.
This book should be read in conjunction with the documentary of the same name. A+: A masterful document that will bring you to tears.

4.0 von 5 Sternen One Day in September 28. Juli 2005
Von F. D. Eppinger - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I thought that the book written by Simon Reeve was a powerful rememberance of an inexcuseable event. The background research for this book was exhausting and it certainly helped to clarify the calamity that has yet to be resolved. This is a must read.
