The Israeli verison of the Entebbe raid, in which a crack Israeli army squad rescued Israeli hostages held by German terrorists in Uganda, this film gives a better insight to the Israeli government's decision and training of the soldiers than the two American TV movie versions. Gaon plays

the officer who was killed in the raid, and Kinski is the terrorist leader. Golan and Globus would go on to form Cannon Films, and this film is better than most of the ones they cranked out. In fact, it received an Oscar nomination for Best Foreign Film of 1977.
